Message from Chief Medical Officer: Oxford University Hospitals
I am sure you are aware that the government have announced relaxations of the COVID-19 rules in England from Monday 19 July, but I want to make you aware that this relaxation does not apply to our hospital sites where, to keep ourselves and our patients safe, we must not relax our guard.
As you may also be aware, case rates of COVID-19 locally in Oxford are very high - among the worst in the country currently.
It is in that context that I wish to remind you that the guidance in our hospitals has not changed and that mask wearing and social distancing remain in place on all our hospital sites.
Thank you for your support for our patients, visitors and staff.
Chief Medical Officer. Oxford University Hospitals
