Cafs is still providing face to face visits to vulnerable and at-risk clients. Our funding bodies are expecting this service to still be provided.

For any clients who fall into this category we must ensure sight/line of vision visits are still being conducted, but with added precautionary measures in place, i.e.

  • not more than 15 minutes face to face:
  • not more than two hours in an enclosed space where numbers average one person per four square metres;
  • thoroughly washing hands with warm soapy water and where this is not available, using hand sanitiser or disinfectant wipes.

 We suggest phoning clients and asking them some simple questions before attending, such as:

  1. Is anyone in the house feeling unwell?
  2. Does anyone in the house have a fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat etc.?
  3. Has anyone in the house been in contact with someone who has COVID-19 or who has been tested for COVID-19?

If they answer ‘Yes’ to any of the above, then discuss with your manager how you can conduct a “line of sight” visit.
