Visiting carers -best practice; Businesses' Covid testing registration

Hobbschi Member Posts: 2 Listener
Situation:Head-injured (30 years ago) man, living independently with part-time care support from paid carers and (unpaid) family.  Ambulant, but some terrain is difficult. Memory and cognitive difficulties.  One-handed.  
Problem: considering when client can return to his own home (currently quasi-shielding at parents' house).  What's best practice for house with visiting carers?  What about the Registering for Covid tests for Businesses- is this worthwhile?

    @Hobbschi and a warm welcome to scope how are you today? I thought that all people employed as carers and those who receive CA had had their first jabs weeks ago?
    Be extra nice to new members.

    Jabs not the issue.  I'd like to be clear on safety measures (masks, etc), and also the lateral-flow tests being made available for businesses.  (We employ carers, pay pensions, Employer's NI etc., so are regarded as a business).
