Covid 19 Updates

The Langston is a small, independent, family run nursing home in the heart of your community. We have worked hard during the pandemic to develop a COVID safe environment, and look forward to welcoming new people to the home. 

Some of our safety policies and measures include:

  • The team and visitors wear appropriate PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and we have a good supply of six weeks in stock

  • 30 minute COVID-19 testing for visitors for Close Contact Visits
