Hospital visitors no longer required to wear face covering as COVID-19 cases decrease

Share this page

Wednesday 26 October 2022

Following a review of the active cases of COVID-19 in the community, the number of patients in the hospital with COVID and patients with other respiratory illnesses within the hospital, it has been agreed to remove the requirement for HSC staff and visitors to wear face coverings in the hospital and the Community Vaccination Centre (CVC).

Staff, patients and visitors can continue to wear face coverings if they wish to.

In addition to taking an LFT before visiting, islanders are also asked to not attend the hospital or care homes if they have any cold or flu-like symptoms irrespective of their LFT result.

LFTs continue to be available to islanders free of charge and can be collected from the Guernsey Information Centre or Beau Sejour.

Islanders who receive care in the community are asked to notify their providers if they are symptomatic so that visits can be planned to protect other community patients and staff.
