Face-to-face visits in care homes could resume within weeks as England’s lockdown is eased, a minister has suggested. Care minister Helen Whately says she wants to see a return to more “normal” visits as COVID-19 restrictions are relaxed. People would not have to wait for their relatives to receive their second vaccine dose before seeing them, she suggested.
