How to wear your mask
As of Monday, 23 November 2020, all Victorians must now wear a fitted face mask (that covers the mouth and nose) when in public buildings or outdoors in situations where they are unable to maintain 1.5m physical distancing. If you are able to maintain physical distancing outdoors, you are no longer required to wear a mask.
At Alfred Health, we have measures in place to ensure everyone in our hospital is wearing masks to protect our community, patients and staff.
If you are visiting Alfred Health as a patient or visitor regardless of where you live, you are required to wear an Alfred Health issued mask upon entry to our hospital. This will be given to you after your temperature is taken at one of our screening temperature stations.
You need to discard the surgical mask you are wearing prior to this in one of our general waste bins at the screening station. If you are wearing your own cloth face covering, you can keep this, but we kindly ask you to put this away into your handbag or other concealed bag.
Upon exiting the hospital, you must discard your Alfred Health issued mask into one of the general waste bins provided at the exit points. You need to put on your own mask for your journey home.
More detailed information about mask wearing requirements may be found here.
