The Ministry of Health has encouraged people with respiratory symptoms or chronic illnesses to wear masks when seeking care at Wellness Centres.

In a statement Tuesday, Principal Nursing Officer Julietta Frederick-Cassius explained that it would protect against the spread of respiratory infections such as COVID-19 and influenza.

The statement follows the closure of the Urgent Care Department at the Respiratory Hospital.

In addition, the Ministry of Health also decided to close the respiratory clinics created during the Covid -19 pandemic and integrate their service into the routine health system.
