Alcona Health Center bases our masking requirements while on our campuses on current area COVID hospital admission rates and other high-risk factors.  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.
