Face masks must still be worn in NHS buildings

15 July 2021

COVID-19 is still circulating in our local communities and because the NHS cares for people when they are at their most vulnerable, it will be keeping all of its infection prevention and control measures in place after 19 July to keep patients, visitors and staff safe.

All patients and visitors to NHS buildings will continue to be asked to wear a mask and sanitise hands regularly. Social distancing measures will also remain in place. This is to protect patients and the community generally.

Face masks and hand sanitiser are available at entrances to local NHS sites.
