The Government’s number one priority for adult social care is that everyone who relies on care gets the safe care they need throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

We have set out a comprehensive action plan to support the adult social care sector in England throughout the COVID-19 outbreak, including ramping up testing, overhauling the way personal protective equipment is being delivered to care homes and helping to minimise the spread of the virus to keep people safe.
