I'd deliver, the contact appears minimal so you are probably just as safe as if delivering to a residential address of a confirmed COVID-19 case.

Leave outside the door in a grey box and ring the bell?

I deliver to a large home by van. There are two sets of locked doors to stop those with dementia from gong missing. I just leave by door and wait in van.

As previously mentioned: Most Care Homes have a Locked Door (to stop the inmates making a break fot it) .... Just Pile the Mail/Packets on the Doorstep and Ring the Bell. :thumbup

Should make life easier for you. I used to have to Deliver to one that wanted you to post the mail through all the individual letter boxes of 40 odd flats. Despite the fact they wouldn't give you the access code, and you had to buzz someone to let you in. Very Helpful. :cuppa

care homes are different from retirement homes. You won't be able to deliver in care homes

:d'oh! Yep I recognise the subtle difference now .... I obviously delivered to some kind of Retirement Home ..... Points still valid about leaving it on the Doorstep of a CARE Home though. :cuppa
