East Devon sees first Covid care home death for three months

Devon Live reports the latest ONS data confirms the first death of a care home resident from coronavirus in Devon for three months was in East Devon. Data relates to the week of July 3 to 9, but registered up to July 17.

From Freedom Day Owl understands that friends and relatives visiting care home residents will still need to wear protective equipment and be advised to minimise physical contact.

But there will not be a limit on the number of “named visitors” a resident can receive and no national limit on how many can visit in a single day.
