Face coverings to be worn at all times in Oxford and Banbury HospitalsFace coverings required in the John Radcliffe, Churchill, Nuffield Orthopaedic and Horton Hospitals from 15 June A message from Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
In line with Government guidance, from Monday 15 June 2020 we are asking patients and members of the public to wear a face covering at all times when visiting our hospitals.
Patients and members of the public may wear a face mask if they choose, but a face covering is sufficient.
Wearing a face covering will help to limit the spread of COVID-19, and protect others from the virus.
For the face covering to be effective, please be aware that:
- it should cover your nose and mouth while allowing you to breathe comfortably
- you should wash your hands or use hand sanitiser before putting it on and taking it off. You should avoid touching the front or the inside of the covering, and handle it by the ear loops or ties
- when wearing the face covering, you should avoid touching your face at all times.
You should also follow other infection control safety measures when visiting our hospitals, including social distancing and regular hand washing.
