Visitors and patients to the hospital will be required to supply and wear their own masks.

The ruling came in last week, and was changed to include that people would have to supply their own masks at the start of the week.

Far West Local Health District Chief Executive Umit Agis said the measure was put in place because the virus was still a concern.

“It is a precaution to put this system in place to minimise any risk,” Mr Agis said.
