This practice should be generalized within 7,200 Ehpad of France ; it is now a recommendation from the Ministry of Health. However, the antigenic tests aimed at the 400,000 employees in the sector will not be compulsory.
“The principle is to encourage, to make the material available, to ensure that as many people as possible have access to it, but that means that you have to take time, that you have to do pedagogy. , that things have to be remembered, and therefore it requires human time“, says Romain Gizolme, director of the Association of Directors at the Service of the Elderly. For visitors, the Ministry of Health also recommends performing a PCR test 72 hours before coming to an establishment.
