As you will be aware from Friday 24th July facemasks become mandatory in shops and supermarkets in England. As much of our COVID-19 secure guidance has been taken from the Governments Working safely during COVID-19 documents, we will also require clients to wear face coverings when visiting our practice.
For us in the equine department, this means that anyone wishing to enter equine reception or visit an inpatient will be asked to wear a face covering. A one way system is now in place for clients entering both SA and Equine reception and clients will be asked to make use of the hand sanitisers available upon entry. Once admitted to the equine lorry park you will NOT be asked to continue wearing a face covering. The fact that we mitigate risk using other methods such as social distancing and that we can interact with clients in an outdoor space means coverings are unnecessary in this environment.
If you have any questions please ask our reception team. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
