Statement from the Minister for Health and Social Services

Jun 14, 2021


Deputy Richard Renouf, Minister for Health and Social Services:

 “Face masks will continue to be worn in Health and Community Services (HCS) buildings to protect vulnerable patients, visitors and staff from COVID-19. This includes the General Hospital and Overdale, as well as Sandybrook, mental health facilities, the vaccination centre and swabbing stations.

“As part of the Island’s Reconnection Roadmap Stage 7, from Monday 14 June the legal requirement for wearing masks is removed. However, Ministers agreed that masks continue to be strongly recommended in healthcare settings and where physical distancing of more than 1 metre is difficult to achieve.

“By asking outpatients, visitors and staff to continue wearing face masks we are helping to protect vulnerable people in our healthcare settings. We, therefore, ask that visitors to the General Hospital, Overdale and other HCS buildings wear face masks until further notice. This includes people who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

“Mask wearing in HCS buildings will be reviewed on a weekly basis by our healthcare colleagues and any change to the guidance will be communicated to the public, patients and staff.”
