North Width opts for masks for employees and visitors


As of today, all care workers and volunteers from care group Noorderverse (in Harlingen De Batting and De Spiker) wear a mouth mask during their work. From Tuesday 29 September, visitors are also requested to wear a mouth mask. With this measure, Noorderreken anticipates the advice that the GGD Fryslân and the Expert Infection Prevention are giving.

The number of corona infections has increased rapidly in recent weeks throughout the country and also in Friesland. To protect residents, clients, visitors, employees and volunteers, from Monday 28 September, Noorderreken will choose to wear face masks within the care locations.

“Friesland is still referred to as a ‘watchful area’, but the number of infections in Friesland is now also increasing. This also applies to infections within North Latitude “, says Martin Kirchner, director of North Width.” Last week a number of employees tested positive for corona. Fortunately, the number of infections among residents or clients is still minimal. But every positive test result is one too a lot. That is why we are taking this new face mask measure. ”

Own mouth mask

North Width provides employees and volunteers with a surgical mouth and nose mask. Visitors and suppliers are asked to bring their own mouth mask. “We have made that decision to keep as many medical mouth masks as possible available for healthcare workers and volunteers,” explains Martin Kirchner. “In an emergency, someone can of course use a mouth mask from us.”

Visit is still possible

In addition to wearing a mouth mask, North Latitude asks visitors to monitor the distance of one and a half meters and to strictly adhere to the now known hygiene rules when visiting one of the locations. Martin Kirchner: “We hope for everyone’s cooperation. The well-being of our residents is of the utmost importance to us. With this measure we can together ensure that they can continue to receive visitors. “

North Width mainly provides care to the elderly in Friesland within fifteen locations and a rehabilitation center. North Width is specialized in dementia, Huntington, Gerontopsychiatry, Korsakov and Non-Drilling Brain Injury. More than 2,500 employees and more than 1,500 volunteers work on the valuable day for clients at Noorderreken.
