KEMH: visitors must wear cloth masks

The Bermuda Hospitals Board has asked the public to wear masks when they visit the hospital.

A BHB spokeswoman said that wearing a cloth mask helped protect King Edward VII Memorial Hospital staff from the novel coronavirus. She added most visitors did wear suitable protective equipment.

She said: “BHB management and staff are committed to our community and want to make it clear, that we will not turn people away who do not have, or have forgotten to wear a mask.”
