Masks being re-introduced for all staff, visitors and patients at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals in response to rising COVID cases

From Tuesday 5 July patients, visitors and staff will once again be required to wear a facemask when attending any of Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust’s hospital or community sites.

Masks will be freely available at entrances and on wards/departments for anyone who doesn’t have one with them.

The decision has been taken due to an increase in COVID cases in the community and in admissions of patients with COVID to hospital.

Dr Jennifer Hill, Medical Director (Operations) said: “We have been closely monitoring the COVID situation and although we are sorry that we have had to take this step again, we believe it is important for us to act given the increase in COVID incidence.

“We ask everyone coming onto our sites to please make sure they wear a mask. We are very grateful for the continued public support and will continue to keep the situation under review.”
