Masking policy

In most cases, we do not require healthy people to wear masks. You are required to wear a face mask when you:

  • Have signs of respiratory illness (with or without fever) such as congestion, cough, runny nose, and sore throat.
  • Have been diagnosed with a respiratory illness (COVID, flu, etc.)
  • Have had a known exposure to COVID (within 7 to 10 days).

We are mask-friendly and continue to offer masks at no cost in our buildings. If you would like any member of the staff who are caring for you to wear a mask, please let us know. We are happy to wear one if you ask.

New Masking Policy effective April 10, 2023. Optional for no respiratory symptoms. Required for congestion, cough, runny nose, sore throat, diagnosed with respiratory illness such as flu or covid-19, known exposure to covid within 7 to 10 days.
