While the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has updated masking guidance for individuals who are fully vaccinated, St. Elizabeth Healthcare and St. Elizabeth Physicians will continue to require masks that cover both the nose and mouth to be worn by everyone in clinical settings, regardless of vaccination status. Staff will wear medically appropriate masks, while patients and visitors are required to wear their own masks. Any person without proper face covering will be asked to use a surgical mask that will be provided to them by staff. Surgical masks and N-95 respirators are reserved for our healthcare workers and other first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.
