NEWSLETTER - (30 September 2020)

October 1, 2020


Due to the announcement by the government to go to Level 1 in respect of the COVID-19 Lockdown, the Caister will amend the protocols with effect from the 1st October 2020 as follows:-

1.Residents may now have visitors for tea on the veranda to a maximum of 4 guests per resident. 2.Meals will be available for resident’s guests in their apartments only. 3.A maximum of 2 persons will be allowed per table in the dining room on a first come, first serve basis. 4.Quarantine periods will still apply and the isolation period will now be for 8 days.

The above does not mean that we can now drop our guard, so please wear your mask when out of your apartment and wash and sanitise your hands regularly as well as practice social distancing at all times.

Residents are advised to please let the reception and clinic know when they are going to be away from the Caister for a period of time. On return to Caister the above quarantine protocol will apply.

As mentioned in some of my previous Newsletter’s, loans by residents to staff are not allowed. Employees have a loan facility available from the company which is paid back over a 6 month period and if they are borrowing elsewhere, the repayment burden becomes unaffordable.

Please ensure that all electrical appliances (air-conditioners, heaters etc) are switched off when you are not in your apartment as this is a waste of electricity which is a very expensive utility.
