It will be compulsory for all patients coming to the surgery to wear a face covering at all times to reduce the risk of spreading coronavirus to other patients and staff. Face coverings are different to face masks in that they can be homemade, made of cloth, and be reusable. Please visit the government website where you can see how to wear and make cloth face covering.
