Face coverings are in place to keep everyone safe – our patients, employees, and community. It is pleasing to see most people doing the right thing; however, there may be some instances where, unfortunately, our patients and visitors may not comply with the legal requirement to wear a face covering while on site. This is why we have made updates to the resources page of the employee covid website to now include:
- A3 Poster for entrances – You are legally required to wear a mask
- Script for employees to read and present to patients and visitors who may refuse to wear a mask
We ask employees to keep in mind that in some circumstances, a face covering is not required, including children under the age of 12, medical condition, or disability. It is important to note if the person requires emergency treatment, you should give that person emergency treatment.
