I am writing to clarify the position of when FFP3 masks will be
worn and when not.
FFP3 masks will now only be worn when in High-Risk
Areas which are now identified as ICU/ITU/HDU or when the patient
is undergoing aerosol-generating procedures (any setting). If you
work in the named high-risk areas you must
be fit mask tested.
All Trusts are now using this updated information.
All suspected or confirmed COVID 19 patients will now be cared for
using standard infection control procedures. I
have attached the table which shows the PPE you use in
general and specialist areas.Please click here to view
