Yesterday we had to suspend visits at Chipchase House and Ferndene, following two confirmed staff cases of COVID-19. When there are two or more cases of COVID-19 at a care home, it is classed as ‘in outbreak’ which means that all visits are suspended until 28 days after the last positive test. We’re working closely with public health to complete contact tracing. At this point, no residents have been identified as close contacts of the positive cases and all of the residents are currently fine and well. As a precaution, all residents have been tested this week and will be tested again next week.
If you have any questions or would like any more information, please get in touch with the team at Chipchase House on 0191 238 1313
We’ll provide regular updates to family members and will let you know as soon as we can restart visits.
Thanks for your support.
