Healthcare - masks

Post by ralphinho » Thu Apr 23, 2020 9:04 pm

Surgical masks should be worn by all healthcare workers for all encounters, of
15 minutes or more, with other healthcare workers in the workplace where a
distance of 2m cannot be maintained.

Does it mean that I can be without mask if the encounter is less than 15 minutes?

Thank you

This instruction is quite explicit about when you should wear a mask. I would assume it is implied that if you spend less than 15 minutes in this situation then you do not need to wear a mask. However, in a real world situation it would probably be wise to wear one.😊
