Face coverings when visiting The Chorley Surgery

Patients and visitors coming to general practice services in Lancashire and South Cumbria will need to wear face coverings to reduce the risk of transmitting coronavirus to others.

Evidence has shown that those infected with COVID-19 can have very mild or no respiratory symptoms (asymptomatic) and potentially transmit the virus to others without being aware of it

Patients and visitors are advised to bring a face covering ahead of coming to appointments in general practice.

The use of face coverings in GP practices is a local decision to help protect public and staff and is not national PHE guidance
If a patient or visitor does not have a face covering, a mask will be provided on arrival
