Masking policy

In most cases, we will not require healthy people to wear masks. There will be times a face mask is required. Including:

  • If you have been around someone with COVID-19 or infected with this virus within the last 10 days
  • If you are ill or have symptoms that include coughing, runny nose, sore throat or trouble breathing.

We are mask-friendly and continue to offer masks at no cost in our buildings. We understand that you may want any member of your care team to wear a mask when they are with you. Your care team will be happy to wear a mask if you ask them to do so.
