Covid: 兩個威爾士衛生局帶回了口罩

國家統計局的數據顯示,在截至6月11日的一周內,威爾士的感染率達到一個月來的最高值。

現在,Aneurin Bevan和Cwm Taf Morgannwg衛生局表示,將要求人們在所有或部分醫院佩戴口罩。

5月30日,在醫療場所必須戴口罩是威爾士政府的冠狀病毒規則中最後一個要去的。

Aneurin Bevan衛生局說,此舉是由 "Covid-19在社區的流行程度越來越高,Covid-19病房爆發的數量越來越多,以及患有Covid-19的工作人員缺席的數量 "所驅動。

它說它將繼續審查已立即生效的政策,並相應地更新人們的看法。

Cwm Taf Morgannwg衛生局說,它的兩家醫院,即皇家格拉摩根和Ysbyty Cwm Rhondda,有越來越多的病人感染了Covid。

為了保護病人、員工和訪客,它說它要求員工和訪客在這些醫院的所有區域戴上口罩,並儘可能地在社會上保持距離。

Hywel Dda衛生局說,法律沒有要求訪客戴口罩,但 "有時可能有必要要求訪客佩戴額外的個人防護設備,如口罩,以幫助最大限度地減少醫院內的感染傳播風險"。

它補充說:"任何穿戴個人防護設備的要求都將由負責病房的護士明確告知"。

威爾士公共衛生局的一位發言人說,儘管它沒有在醫院經營任何病房或臨床區域,但其篩查部門的方案確實在醫院工作,因此其工作人員將 "遵循當地的指導,其中包括在某些地方使用口罩"。


Figures from the Office for National Statistics show infections were at their highest in Wales for a month in the week up to 11 June.

Now, Aneurin Bevan and Cwm Taf Morgannwg heath boards have said people will be asked to wear masks at all or some of their hospitals.

On 30 May, the necessity to wear a mask in health settings was the last of the Welsh government's coronavirus rules to go.

Aneurin Bevan health board said the move was driven by "the increasing prevalence of Covid-19 in the community, the increased number of Covid-19 ward outbreaks and the numbers of staff absent with Covid-19".

It said it would continue to review the policy, which has been implemented with immediate effect, and update people accordingly.

Cwm Taf Morgannwg health board said it had an increasing number of patients with Covid in two of its hospitals, Royal Glamorgan and Ysbyty Cwm Rhondda.

To protect patients, staff and visitors it said it was asking staff and visitors to wear masks in all areas of those hospitals, as well as socially distancing as much as possible.

Hywel Dda health board said it was not a legal requirement for visitors to wear masks, but "from time to times it may be necessary to ask visitors to wear additional PPE, such as face masks, to help minimise the risk of spread of infection in hospital".

It added: "Any requirement to wear PPE will be communicated clearly by the nurse in charge of the ward."

A Public Health Wales spokesman said although it did not run any wards or clinical areas in hospitals, its screening division programmes did work in hospitals, so its staff would "follow local guidance which includes the use of face masks in some places".
