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
include multiple layers
allow for breathing
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.
