Mask guidance is based on our Local COVID-19 Transmission Level, which is subject to change. Our transmission level is determined by the combination of CDC community-level tracking and our standard precautions for clinical care. Possible transmission levels are: High, Medium, and Low.
Current Local COVID-19 Transmission Level: Medium
Current Mask Guidance
In outpatient settings, hospital corridors, and transit areas, masks are optional.
Masks are STILL REQUIRED if you:
- Have symptoms of COVID-19
- Were recently exposed to someone with COVID-19
- Are in the Emergency Department, an inpatient ward, surgery area, or sick call
Your safety and well-being are top priorities. Staff members, visitors, and patients reserve the right to wear masks in any setting based on personal comfort or concern for exposure. In addition, all are encouraged to wear masks in settings with vulnerable or immunosuppressed patients.
We will continue to closely monitor our Local COVID-19 Transmission Level and update our mask guidance accordingly.
