All Crossroads care support workers follow the government guidelines for Covid testing. This is reassuring for our unpaid carers, clients, staff and their families, as it controls infection and helps to beat Covid. Our testing plan is that every care support worker collects four weeks worth of tests at a time and takes a test weekly. In the unlikely event of a test coming back positive, they self-isolate and inform the resources centre so their work can be covered.
If staff experience symptoms between scheduled tests, they immediately self-isolate and take an extra test. All our staff wear full ppe. at all times while working and friendly managerial support is always available.
