THE requirements to wear a face covering and social distance will remain at Ludlow Hospital and at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford despite the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions.

Staff, patients, and visitors at all healthcare settings will need to continue to follow existing restrictions.

This means that visitors, patients, and staff must continue to wear hospital-supplied face masks in all indoor areas, hands must be sanitised and washed regularly, and a 2-metre distance must be maintained.

Current visiting restrictions will also remain in place, with, as before, allowances being made for compassionate visiting.
