Important information regarding Covid-19 guidance

COVID 19 New

On Wednesday 9th September we published an update to our COVID-19 guidance, which included an article regarding the wearing of face masks within operational vehicles. This guidance was updated in error, as we are still awaiting confirmation from the Government with regards to their latest update.

We have now removed any incorrect documents and will update again as directed by the Government to do so.

The Trust position remains that staff are required to wear a surgical facemask when they are unable to maintain the 2-metre social distancing, or have other control measures in place, this includes within vehicles. This is to help reduce the risk of transmission and protect you and your colleagues.

We apologise for any confusion and would like pass on our thanks to those who commented on the update article.

Please refer to the Covid-19 update page for our current guidance, and in particular, the Working Safely Document.
