With Covid-19 cases remaining high, people in Wolverhampton are being asked to wear a face covering if they need to attend a healthcare setting.
The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust has been asking that patients and visitors wear a face covering, if they can, at New Cross Hospital, West Park Hospital and Cannock Hospital since 11 July, to help keep patients and staff safe.

People are now also being urged to wear face coverings when they have GP appointments or are visiting any other healthcare setting, such as a care home, unless they have a reasonable reason not to do so.

Data released by the Office for National Statistics last week showed that a total of 3,760,200 people in private households in the UK were estimated to have had coronavirus in the week to 14 July – up from 3,498,700 people the previous week See less
