Primary care, ambulatory care and other non-emergency outpatient clinical settings
For primary care, ambulatory care and other non-emergency outpatient settings (including hospital outpatient clinics) plastic aprons, FRSMs, eye protection and gloves should be used for any direct care of possible and confirmed cases. Such PPE may be indicated for work in such settings regardless of case status, subject to local risk assessment.
For health and social care workers working in reception and communal areas but not involved in direct patientcare, every effort should be made to maintain social distancing of 2 metres. Where this is not practical use of FRSM is recommended.
