Update to Infection Prevention and Control Measures at ASPH - Face Masks
Due to the rise in COVID-19 in the community, we have taken the decision to reinstate mandatory mask wearing for visitors, patients, and staff to keep everyone safe across the hospitals in the Trust.
Surgical face masks will 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
