Breaking News ! Care homes within the Cheshire West and Chester local authority area are now free from COVID-19 infections. Health officials have welcomed the milestone achievement in the borough's fightback against coronavirus. Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, health and social care officers with Cheshire West and Chester Council have been working alongside NHS partners to support the borough’s care homes. Recent weeks have seen the partners working to support the mass rollout of vaccinations to care home residents and staff across the borough. Figures reveal that 99 per cent of care home residents in the borough have now been vaccinated. Most recently, the Council and its partners have supported the re-introduction of visits from a single loved one as lockdown eases. However, with the welcome news comes the message for everyone to remain vigilant and prevent the virus from returning. Those visiting a care home resident must continue to follow all infection prevention and control measures, including having a lateral flow test beforehand, wear PPE and avoid close contact. Council and health staff have been on hand throughout the pandemic to advise care home staff and management of their requirements and to keep them updated on the latest developments. Now, infection prevention and control experts with the Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust have revealed that there are no current outbreaks in the borough’s care homes.

. “It will undoubtedly bring comfort to the families of those residents in the borough’s care homes.” “Throughout the pandemic, we have worked alongside our NHS partners to support our residents. This good news is due in no small part to the commitment, dedication and professionalism of everyone who works in care homes in our borough. Their devotion to the people in their care and their willingness to go the extra mile means that some of the most vulnerable people in our borough are now safer. We would like to thank everyone for their efforts.” Mr Ashworth added: “As welcome as this news is, it is no cause for complacency. We have seen in the past how persistent Covid-19 can be. We cannot afford to risk undoing all this good work and we must continue to do all we can to prevent the further spread of the virus. ” Top stories from the CheshireLive newsletter Here are the latest stories from the CheshireLive newsletter Cheshire lake saved from destruction by community M6 and A556 to close as work on new junction 19 bridge continues Four-year-old Cheshire stroke survivor completes marathon Covid survivors could be left with permanent lung damage, fears health campaigner Want to sign up to receive these stories straight to your inbox?
