Updated guidance on face masks

17 March 2023

Due to the continued decrease of COVID – 19 in the community, from Monday 13th March 2023 the requirement for staff, patients and visitors to wear face masks will change whilst on the hospital site.

Health and care staff, inpatients and visitors to the hospital will no longer be required to wear face masks in non – clinical areas of the hospital such as the main hospital street / corridors, the restaurant, RVS and in waiting areas.

Whilst this is the case, the use of face masks still applies where applicable in clinical areas.
