Guidance for Imaging and Radiotherapy services during the Covid-19 pandemic: Use of face coverings for patients, clients and carers

26 May, 2020


This guidance is for imaging and radiotherapy services to help promote good practice when social distancing cannot be managed. It is offered to members to support the development of local policy.

The use of face coverings in such situations is aimed at reducing the spread of Covid-19 between patients or clients and their carers, as staff will be wearing PPE as appropriate. There is evidence that cloth coverings can decrease the amount of virus passing from the wearer by as much as 99%.
