Please note: There are still areas where masks and other personal protective equipment must be worn such as surgical areas, the NICU, oncology, or when visiting patients who are immunocompromised or in isolation.

Patients, visitors and employees may choose to continue wearing masks if they desire.

The mask requirement could resume if there is a high rate of COVID-19 admission in any of our hospitals.
