MASK USE | NEW RECOMMENDATIONS EFFECTIVE DECEMBER 20, 2023
The recent outbreak of respiratory viruses is having a major impact on workloads throughout the hospital and outpatient network.
For this reason, as of December 20, 2023, the Direction Générale de la Santé (DGS) is recommending that all staff in contact with patients, as well as visitors, wear masks in ambulatory care, pre-hospital care and hospital care facilities.
The Direction supports this approach and urges everyone concerned to apply this recommendation.
In order to protect those most at risk, the recommendation to wear a mask applies to all staff in contact with them, including nursing staff and administrative and logistical staff working in care units. This applies to acute care and rehabilitation facilities, as well as practices, clinics and outpatient clinics. The recommendation to wear a mask also applies to visitors to care facilities.
This recommendation is provisional and will be lifted as soon as the situation in the healthcare system is deemed to have improved.
Thank you for your cooperation.
