Face Masks in Health Settings

Living Magazines Masks GP Practices

Legal covid restrictions have ended, but for now measures to prevent the spread of covid remain in health settings to keep staff and patients safe.

People who have symptoms of Covid and a temperature should remain at home and avoid contact with other people while they have a temperature.

It is important that you let your practice know if you have any symptoms of covid before you attend a face-to-face appointment. If you have symptoms of covid and you need a face-to-face appointment, an assessment at a suitable location will be offered.

You must continue to wear a mask when you visit a health care setting.

This will help to reduce the risk of staff absence in the surgery and also to help keep vulnerable patients safe.
