Coronavirus (COVID-19) update
To reduce the risk of coronavirus transmissions in South Tyneside and to help protect some of the most vulnerable in our community, we have asked care homes to stop visits to residents. Care homes have been advised and will contact residents' families to advise them of the new arrangements.
We recognise the importance of family visits and will recommend the lifting of restrictions, upon further guidance from Public Health. We will keep you informed of any further decisions.
