Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Hospital face masks had previously been required in all areas of Nottingham University Hospitals’ three sites since the start of the pandemic in March 2020 to protect staff, patients and visitors from COVID-19.

Under the new guidance that came into effect in June 2022, face masks will only be compulsory in clinical areas. This includes all wards, outpatient areas and our Emergency Department, as well as the trust’s intensive care unit, neonatal intensive care unit, theatres and other areas where its most vulnerable patients are treated.

Hospital face masks are now optional in non-clinical areas, including corridors, retail outlets, restaurants and staff offices.
