Agency Staff At Higher Risk of Covid-19.

ONS: Agency and bank staff show higher infection rates in care homes.

Infection rates were lower in homes offering sick pay.


A Vivaldi project survey[1] of 9,081 care homes in England from 26th May to 20th June has found that 56% reported at least one confirmed case of the novel Coronavirus.


The survey covered nearly 293,434 residents and 441,498 staff, using weighting to take account of the care homes which did not respond to the survey.


Of the homes that reported at least one case, an estimated 20% of residents and 7% of staff tested positive, as reported by the care home managers.
