Face masks for outpatients

As there is an increase in COVID-19 infections in the community, we encourage patients and visitors to our hospital to wear face masks where possible, to protect our patients, staff, yourself and your loved ones.

Wearing a mask is mandatory for:

Inpatients (if they are able to do so)

  • who have Covid-19 and are in multiple bedded spaces and corridors.
  • with respiratory symptoms on respiratory pathway (suspected COVID-19) in multiple bedded areas.
  • that are immunosuppressed not in side room.
  • out of personal preference. 


  • if they have respiratory symptoms and need urgent care.
  • out of personal preference. 


  • if visiting immunosuppressed patients.
  • out of personal preference.

Staff will continue to wear face coverings in all patient facing areas. This situation is constantly monitored and we will update any changes to this guidance on our website.


Our staff at Salisbury District Hospital have long been well regarded for the quality of care and treatment they provide for our patients and for their innovation, commitment and professionalism. This has been recognised in a wide range of achievements and it is reflected in our award of NHS Foundation Trust status. This is afforded to hospitals that provide the highest standards of care.
