Mask and Face Covering Guidelines 


Patients and visitors* are now required to wear a mask or face covering upon entry to all Christ Hospital Health Network facilities, to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

 

Homemade masks or face coverings can be made from a variety of materials you may already have at home, including t-shirts, bandanas, scarves and handkerchiefs. These coverings should:

 

  • fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face

  • be secured with ties or ear loops

  • include multiple layers of fabric

  • allow for breathing without restriction

  • be able to be laundered and machine dried without damage or change to shape

  • (For additional details on face coverings or instructions on how to create one without sewing, visit the CDC’s website.)

Please be sure to wear a face covering to your next appointment or visit. As always, please don’t hesitate to call or message your provider’s office to discuss any of your healthcare needs.

*Face coverings should not be used on children under age 2 or anyone who has trouble breathing or is unable to remove the mask without assistance.
