REUNIONS are taking place across the country as care home residents are now allowed to hold hands with a regular indoor visitor.

The move, which came under the Government’s plan to ease lockdown restrictions in England, sees people who have not been able to be in the same room as their loved one for up to a year finally coming together again.


Visitors will be required to take a coronavirus lateral flow test before entry and personal protective equipment (PPE) must be worn.

Residents are asked not to hug or kiss their relatives, though hand holding is permitted.
