Corona Virus COVID 19 Update – Testing
July 2, 2020 10:06 am
We are continuing to maintain and update our Covid Contingency Plan to reflect Government, NHS and local authority advice. We have included the staff actions required if they should be contacted by the Government Track and Trace service, or if they show symptoms.
We have planned a Covid testing regime(with planned re testing) with the local authority testing sites, and all staff at NSSL services have completed their tests, with no positive results. We are also awaiting news from the CQC, of the availability of Antibody testing services and will be planning to access these.
As we have services in many locations we are using different COVID 19 testing centres.
Charlotte, one of our Service Managers in Luton, attended a COVID 19 test at the Milton Keynes test site, and advised us that the process was easy and straightforward, saying
” On arrival, we were asked if there was any NHS or care workers in the car. I was asked to show my ID. I then drove round until the point I had the actual test. At the point when they came to do the swab, I was also presented with the card ( thank you), pictured. Thankfully my test result was negative!”
We have continued to restrict access to third parties to protect our clients and staff. We are offering clients alternative ways to keep in touch with family and friends including the use of video conferencing.
