Coronavirus precautions at the RHN

Coronavirus precautions at the RHN

Updated 12 August 2022


Wearing of surgical face masks in clinical areas is still mandatory – these include wards, therapy rooms, clinics, chapel, gyms and LIFTs.

Wearing masks in non-clinical areas is no longer mandatory. However, windows and doors should be opened wherever possible and social distancing to be observed where possible.

Daily visits are allowed as normal from 12 pm – 8 pm.

There are no longer any restrictions on the number of visitors at any one time, please feel free to use our communal spaces such as the De Lancey Lowe room, Reed’s café, and the lovely outdoors including the gardens for larger groups of visitors.

All visitors and staff must wash their hands thoroughly on arrival at the RHN.

All visitors will be given a surgical mask to wear for the duration of their visit. These should be worn at all times around patients/residents
