Before publishing updated guidance on visiting care homes on 22 April, we considered the requirements of the Public Sector Equality Duty as set out in section 149 of the Equality Act 2010. Our guidance on visiting in and visiting out seeks to balance the known health and wellbeing benefits to residents of visits with the need to protect individuals from the risk to life posed by COVID-19.
