Swine Flu Brings Beard Ban for Health Workers

Scare the Swine Flu.jpgFrom the Independent:

"In a special section for staff with facial hair and beards, it says that those with "excessive facial hair" cannot expect the face mask to provide protection unless they are clean-shaven.

"Therefore, healthcare workers with facial hair, including stubble, are advised to remove it at the beginning of a shift" if they are likely to be exposed to infection due to the procedures they have to perform for swine flu patients."

This leaves me wondering where those health workers are putting their beards...
