Update to Infection Prevention and Control Measures at ASPH - Face Masks

Due to the prevalence of COVID-19 in the community falling, we have taken the decision to remove mandatory mask wearing for visitors, patients, and staff in non-clinical areas of the hospitals across the Trust.

Surgical face masks will still be required to be worn by staff and members of the public when visiting wards and clinical areas. Face masks will be available in the main entrances of the hospitals and in clinical areas.

We will continue to closely monitor the situation and will update you with any further changes to our Infection Prevention and Control measures.

Thank you for your continued support.

Andrea Lewis, Chief Nurse
David Fluck, Medical Director
