Will you provide me with a mask upon entry?
We require all people on campus—employees, patients, visitors, vendors —to wear an appropriate face covering as part of our Safe Care Commitment
, to protect everyone in our hospitals and clinics. We encourage you to bring your own face covering with you, but if you don’t have one, we will provide one to you. It’s also possible, based on your symptoms at screening, that we may have you change your cloth face covering for a hospital provided mask.
The use of masks for all who enter our facilities is what is called Universal Source Control—it recognizes that any patient, visitor, or staff member could have COVID-19 without any symptoms. When we are all masked, we can prevent the spread of the virus to others.
