PLEASE FIND BELOW A NOTE FROM SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT REGARDING FACE MASKS IN HOSPITALS AND GENERAL PRACTICE

As face coverings guidance in wider public settings in Scotland gradually stands down, certain settings remain where the extended use of facemasks and/or face coverings will still be necessary. In settings such as hospitals, primary care and within wider community care, the wearing and the extended use of FRSM (face masks) will still be required for healthcare workers, patients and patient visitors. This is due to these settings hosting more clinically vulnerable individuals, for whom COVID-19 infection still poses a greater risk.
