FACE COVERINGS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING
Although the government has lifted the restriction of wearing masks as of 24th February 2022, the NHS are asking when visiting GP surgeries to please wear a face covering. This is for the safety of patients who can be unwell, medical staff and yourselves due to the environment we work in.
Many people may feel uncomfortable at the thought of wearing a face mask but there are good reasons for doing so and people are urged to remember that this will help us to defeat the virus. Face coverings are required not to protect the wearer, but for those they come into close contact with, as many people can be Coronavirus positive but have no symptoms. You could feel fine but pass the virus to someone who may suffer severe health consequences or even die. There are a few exemptions, but you should not ask your GP for proof you are exempt. This is not a good use of a doctor’s time or NHS resources in the current circumstances. It is up to individuals to demonstrate they have a valid exemption.
