AS Covid restrictions eased yesterday, Barnsley Hospital has reminded women attending breast screenings to continue to wear a face covering.

Masks will remain mandatory throughout the hospital unless you are exempt.

A spokesperson for the hospital said: “Restrictions will ease on Monday but staff in our Breast Screening Unit will continue to wear face coverings during your screening appointment.

“Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to welcoming you to the Barnsley Breast Screening Unit.”
