Continue to wear face coverings in healthcare settings

By Phillipa Davies February 25, 2022

ll remaining Covid-related legal restrictions in England have now been removed as part of the Prime Minister’s plan for Living with Covid-19, however due to the higher risk nature of health and social care settings, NHS guidance in healthcare settings has not changed.

NHS staff, patients and visitors must continue to wear face coverings in all healthcare settings, unless exempt, and observe social distancing.

If you arrive at one of our community settings without a face covering, you will be offered a surgical mask and if exempt, you will be offered a face shield as an alternative.

Please help us to reduce the risk of infection for our staff and patients, particularly those who may be more vulnerable, by following this guidance. Thank you.
