Council carers protected with PPE
31 March 2020
Brent Council’s critical carers will be hitting the front-line fully protected with personal protection equipment (PPE) to help stop the spread of Covid-19.
Around 1.6 million gloves and aprons were dropped off at the Council’s headquarters in what was a military-style operation over the weekend. A further two hundred and eighty thousand masks will be delivered this week.
This will help shield approximately 2,250 vulnerable over-70s across 180 nursing and residential homes, and those who receive care at home in Brent.
This critical supply will help ‘shield’ vulnerable residents for the next 3 to 6 months.
It will also protect around 23,000 care staff across the London Borough of Brent.
