Restriction Changes Monday 19th July

Many of the remaining COVID-19 restrictions are due to be lifted on Monday. 

Yesterday afternoon Public Heath England shared that those restrictions should remain in place in NHS buildings. 

So along with other healthcare settings things will remain much the same at YMG until guidance changes.  

We will need to continue to:- 

Wear face masks

Social distance  

Use hand gel / wash hands  

This will be disappointing to some who were looking forward to a return of something like 'normality' and a relief to others who were worried about being less protected.  It's yet another example of how though we are 'all in this together' and we all have different thoughts feelings and concerns about what we are going through. 

Our priorities as always are to keep both staff and patients safe.  Staying well together as a team means we can stay open and keep services running for our patients.

NHS England have released a statement at https://www.england.nhs.uk/2021/07/nhs-patients-staff-and-visitors-must-continue-to-wear-face-coverings-in-healthcare-settings/?fbclid=IwAR1AgYj97wNlxk86WFSVt4tXIUmfxJQBvIcF4NIb3bjvARHKgwbzjqqwoFM
