COVID health protections in hospitals – return to masks

Health Consumers’ Council welcomes today’s announcement by the WA Department of Health that WA public hospitals will be strengthening health protections in light of an increase in COVID-19 infections.

We know that COVID has remained a concern for medically vulnerable people and the community at large. And with regular media reports of rising infection numbers, and evidence about the impact of Long COVID still emerging, many in the community may be concerned about whether we’re doing enough to manage the risk of serious illness or widespread infection.

HCC will be hosting a Community Conversation for health consumers where attendees will hear directly from Dr Andy Robertson, WA Health’s Chief Health Officer, and get the facts on the latest wave on Tuesday 12 December at 1pm.
