Updated guidance on wearing masks in public and non-clinical areas

12 December 2022

From Tuesday 13 December, members of staff, patients and visitors are no longer required to wear a mask in public and non-clinical areas across the Royal Free London. Masks are still required in clinical areas unless you’re exempt from wearing one. 

A clinical area refers to a department, a ward, a waiting area, or clinic — please continue to wear surgical face masks in these areas.

Please continue to take precautions based on your situation and anyone is welcome to wear a mask if they feel safer doing so.
