Mask Update

Effective January 3, 2024, we updated our masking policy to keep our staff, patients and visitors safe during this time of increased risk from various respiratory illnesses including COVID-19 and flu.

At this time, providers, staff, patients and visitors are strongly encouraged to wear surgical masks while in Southcoast Health clincal facilities.

Masking Policy

  • For patients and visitors NOT experiencing COVID-19 or other respiratory symptoms, masks are strongly recommended.
  • For patients experiencing COVID-19 and other respiratory symptoms, masks are required. When possible, we recommend limiting interaction with others if you are not feeling well.
  • For visitors experiencing COVID-19 and other respiratory symptoms, we strongly discourage visiting until symptoms have resolved.
  • For patients and visitors with an immunocompromised state, masks are strongly advised.

In certain patient care situations, such as in many Cancer Center areas, masking may still be required. Please adhere to all practice-specific requirements throughout your visit.

We are closely monitoring case numbers, hospitalizations and virus activity daily. We will continue to proactively adjust this guidance as needed.
