From the 24th of October until the ban is lifted, the wearing of masks is again mandatory in the patient care units of the University of Debrecen Nagyerdei Clinical Centre and Kenézy Gyula Campus.

According to the regulation, all health and healthcare workers, medical students, patients and visitors must wear masks covering the nose and mouth at all times in patient care areas.

However, wearing a mask is not compulsory for patients in a health care institution in the ward where they are accommodated, for minors under the age of six and persons with intellectual or psychosocial disabilities. In addition, to ensure unhindered communication, patients with hearing impairments and persons communicating with them or assisting them in their communication are exempted from the obligation to wear a mask for the duration of the conversation.

In addition to the mandatory wearing of masks for the protection of in-patients and staff, a visiting ban has been introduced in the Internal Medicine Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation Unit of the Kenézy Gyula Campus Internal Medicine Clinic, Building D and in the Hematology Unit of the Nagyerdei Campus Internal Medicine Clinic, Building B.

The management of the Clinical Centre advises that in the units where a visiting ban has yet to be imposed, relatives should only visit patients in justified cases and only if they do not have upper respiratory symptoms.

The management of the University of Debrecen and the Clinical Centre asks for the cooperation and patience of patients and relatives.

The above measures apply until revoked.
