New face covering guidance for adult support teams

On 15th December, the Government announced changes to masking guidance across adult social care in England, moving towards a risk-based use of masks.

This updated guidance details the risk-based approach of using face masks and replaces previous guidance that stated face masks should be worn at all times across adult social care. Please note, there will be times when masks still need to be worn.

We have produced an easy read guide, summarising the changes to guidance, which you can download on the Dimensions website.
