Take precautions when visiting hospitals - Health DDG

People who are visiting in-house patients at hospitals must take additional precautions on their safety, Health Services acting Deputy Director General Dr. Hemantha Herath said.

Issuing a media statement through the Department of Government Information, he requested the public to strictly adhere to COVID-19 health protocols such as maintaining social distance, washing hands and wearing face masks when visiting hospitals.

The release titled ‘Guidance Note for General Public on Visiting Hospitals during COVID-19’ also requested to minimise the visits to see residential patients in hospitals.

It also advised the people to handover the supplies by some appropriate method without directly meeting the patients. The people are advised to visit the nearest hospital if anyone requires essential healthcare.
