Generally no

Wearing face coverings within the WIN buildings or scanning facilities is no longer compulsory.

However, both surgical masks and FFP3 respirators will continue to be freely available on request.

When in the MRI control rooms or other experimental facilities, please continue to wear a mask if you:

  • Feel unwell or have respiratory or viral symptoms
  • Your participant or a member of the study are particularly vulnerable to infection
  • Are requested to do so by a radiographer (some researchers and staff are vulnerable)
  • Feel more comfortable doing so

In most circumstances, radiographers are no longer required to wear a mask, but should you wish them to wear one, please ask and they will put one on.

Finally, we request that if you feel unwell with a cold or virus, please avoid entering the MRI Control Rooms or other experiment facilities unless absolutely necessary.
