Coronavirus (COVID-19) Patient and Visitor Masking

​At this time, all patients and visitors are required to wear a mask in Health System facilities. 

Exceptions for patient masking include:

  • Children under the age of 2
  • Patients who have trouble breathing or have a medical condition, which would be negatively impacted by wearing a mask
  • Patients that have trouble removing the mask
  • Patient who is presenting to an Emergency Department or Urgent Care

Patients with a medical condition will be asked to cover their nose and mouth with a tissue before proceeding to their appointment. 

Visitors who are allowed to enter per our current visitor guidelines will be required to wear a mask at all times while visiting any of our locations. If the visitor does not agree to wear a mask, they will be asked to leave.

If you do not have a mask, we will offer you one for free. Masking in public is recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to slow the spread of the virus.
