Domestic abuse refuges
Click through the section below to learn how to quickly identify and contain potential Covid-19 outbreaks.
This guidance is for managers and staff of refuge services and other forms of domestic abuse safe accommodation, including emergency accommodation, where victims of domestic abuse (children and adults) are housed.
- Employees or residents with symptoms of Covid-19 however mild must self-isolate for at least 10 days from when they started having symptoms and must have a test (book here or call 119)
- If they test positive they will be asked by the NHS Test and Trace service to provide details of anyone they've been in contact with (will not automatically be all their co-workers, but people who identify as a 'close contact' - a 'close contact' is someone who has been close to somebody who has tested positive at any point between 2 days before the person was symptomatic up to 10 days from the onset of symptoms)
- You may be informed of a confirmed case by Test and Trace, an employee, resident or our Public Health team
