Hospital admission rates with “color” and screening questions will be posted at all patient entrances. A separate sign showing the current appropriate color/admission level will be displayed next to this one on all entrances for you to view prior to entering our buildings. Green = Low/No Mask Required. Yellow = Medium/No Mask Required. Orange = Mask Required. Yes to Screening Questions (Do you have COVID symptoms? Have you had tested positive for COVID? Have you had close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID?) = Mask Required. If you wish to know the current status of masking requirements before coming to our location please phone us. Otherwise be prepared that you may have to wear a mask based on the current level as posted on the entrance door.
