Updated Mask Policy – June 2022

Here is a summary of the recently updated COVID mask policy for healthcare settings, including the Wooda Surgery, as of June 2022:

  • Patients are no longer required to wear a face covering (but are welcome to wear one as a personal preference)
  • Patients who attend with respiratory symptoms should wear a mask or face covering if tolerated
  • Healthcare staff will continue to wear masks where there is a risk of COVID-19 transmission or the patient is vulnerable / has reduced immunity
  • Healthcare staff will also put on a mask if the patient makes a reasonable request for them to do so
  • We will continue to use our one way system in the surgery to help patients flow through the practice and reduce disease transmission
