Strategies, policies and procedures
We're doing all we can to protect those in care homes, as well as those receiving care in their own homes. Every council in England has prepared plans on how to support all care homes in their areas to control and prevent future infection outbreaks, working alongside the NHS locally and with Public Health England. We have published our plan here.
On 13 May the government announced that it would make available a £600m Infection Control Fund for adult social care in England, and this was distributed to local authorities on 22 May. We've distributed our allocation of this money to care providers to support the implementation of a range of infection control measures. Find out more about how we have used the Adult Social Care Infection Control Fund.
