Can I visit my relatives in Hospitals and Residential Care Homes?
Yes, you can visit your relatives in hospitals and residential care homes. As hospitals and homes are settings with vulnerable patients/residents, visitors are required to comply with the visiting hours and policies put in place by hospitals and homes, such as mask-wearing and limits to the number of visitors.
