NHS Patients, Staff and Visitors Must Continue To Wear Face Coverings in Healthcare Settings


 


England’s Chief Nurse has today reminded the public that everyone accessing or visiting healthcare settings must continue to wear a face covering and follow social distancing rules.


 


Covid restrictions will end in many settings in England from Monday.


 


However, Public Health England’s infection prevention control guidelines and hospital visiting guidance are set to remain in place for all staff and visitors. 


 


That means NHS visitor guidance will stay in place across all health services including hospitals, GP practices, dental practices, optometrists and pharmacies to ensure patients and staff are protected. 


                                                             


Staff, patients and visitors will also be expected to continue to follow social distancing rules when visiting any care setting as well as using face coverings, mask and other personal protection equipment.


 


The NHS will continue to support staff in ensuring that the guidance is followed in all healthcare settings.
