Wearing of masks

 

We have been given advice following the recent upsurge in covid 19 cases. So many people have been using visors in place of masks, the following is the guidance we have been given
Face visors
Face visors do not offer the same protection as a face covering which covers the nose and the mouth.
The use of cloth face coverings are therefore recommended, as they provide much better protection from the risk of infection from the COVID-19 virus.
 
I would ask all to try and adhere to the guidance to help protect all of us.
