Will anyone be expected to wear a mask in clinic?

| 0

As healthcare professionals we continue to have a duty of care to reduce the spread of infection. Our team will be wearing recommended PPE and this includes a face mask, and we strongly urge all patients, visitors, and clients to do the same. We know that COVID-19 spreads through the air by droplets and aerosols that are exhaled from the nose and mouth of an infected person, and that wearing a face covering will reduce this risk. This is particularly important in the clinic when there is a risk of close social contact with people you do not usually meet and where social distancing and other measures cannot be maintained.
