Recent NHS Guidance on the use of Facemasks

When you visit the Surgery you are no longer routinely required to wear a face mask unless it is your preference. HOWEVER if you have respiratory symptoms, or any symptoms which you think could be covid, please wear a face mask as you would have previously.
Staff are also not required to routinely wear a face mask unless it is their preference. However, if they are working with untriaged patients attending with respiratory symptoms, or any symptoms that could be Covid, they will wear a mask and PPE as previously.
This guidance will be reviewed and adjusted if there is a rise in covid cases.
