UM Shore Regional Health Updated All-KN95 Masking Requirement
Tuesday, December 20, 2022
Due to an increase in respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19, flu and RSV, in our hospitals and the communities we serve, we will be moving to all-KN95 mask use, beginning Tuesday morning, December 20, at 7 am.
This new policy will be in effect throughout all UM Shore Regional Health inpatient and outpatient facilities, and includes staff, patients and visitors. If you do not have a KN95 mask, a team member will provide you with either a N95 or a KN95 mask to wear during your visit.
This policy is in effect until further notice. We will continue to re-evaluate the need for this increased precaution, and will update our patients and the community as changes necessitate.
Thank you for your understanding.
