Should everyone in hospital have to wear a mask?

As elective surgeries resume, masks should be made compulsory for everyone entering a hospital, urge two US doctors

Masks should be made compulsory for all patients and visitors to hospitals to ensure the best protection for healthcare practitioners during the COVID-19 pandemic, two US doctors say.

Dr Lee Fleisher  and Dr Renyu Liu of the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine in Philadelphia, argue that although wearing a mask does not necessarily protect someone from contracting the virus, a mask policy prevents people from spreading it.
