Wear a face mask
Wearing a face mask in the hospital is mandatory as of the age of 12.
- Bring your own face mask and wear it everywhere in the hospital.
- An FFP2 mask (without valve) is highly recommended, especially if your're visiting a patients on any of the following wards E 435, E 650, E 467, E 630, E 662 or E 663.
- In any other cases, a surgical face mask is a good choice.
Wear your face mask all the time, also when travelling from one location to another, or if you're waiting.
Wearing a face mask helps limit the spread of COVID-19, but only when you wear it correctly.
- Wash your hands thoroughly before putting your face mask on.
- Only touch the elastic bands or ties.
- A face mask has to cover your nose, mouth and chin and has to fit snugly against the sides of your face.
- Avoid touching the mask as soon as you've put it on.
- Avoid putting it on and off too often.
- Always wear your face mask when moving around in the hospital, e.g. for an examination or for every care contact within 1.5 metres.
- You're taking your face mask off? Store it neatly in the appropiate kidney dish.
- During your hospital admission you will be given a face mask every morning.
- When you're alone in the room, you can take off your face mask.
- Wear your face mask every time someone enters the room: a care provider, hospital staff or visitors.
