Bethesda Update - Studley Home

Due to the receipt of a positive COVID-19 test result for a member of staff on Saturday 23rd January, which was confirmed on Monday, we have taken the decision to temporarily close the visiting facility at the Studley Home.
The individual concerned was sent home to self-isolate when the original result was received and consequently, as an additional precaution the residents have been asked to remain in their rooms. Additionally we await the results of a re-test of all residents and staff carried out  yesterday. 
In the meantime, staff will be taking Lateral Flow Tests (a.k.a. rapid test) every day for seven days before commencing work. This is in line with government guidance following receipt of a positive test result.
Once the results of the re-testing of residents and staff is known a decision will be taken on whether the additional measures can either be lifted or will need to remain in place for a the time being. 
We pray for the welfare of the residents, the member of staff concerned, the Home Manager and each member of her team.
If you have any questions, please contact Adrian Topping at adriantopping@gsbf.uk or on the office land line.
