Update to universal masking standard

28 Mar 2021

Some exceptions allowed outdoors

As the weather improves, we understand that people will want to spend more time outdoors. The standard work for universal mask usage on all Salem Health Hospitals and Clinics’ locations and properties has been updated to allow for limited exceptions when you can be outside and without a mask. Physical distancing of six feet or more is still required and you must wear a mask when you enter a building or approach screening. Meetings will continue to offer a virtual option in most cases, but are no longer limited to four people if meeting in person. All participants must be masked, physically distanced (> six feet) and eating or drinking is not permitted during in-person meetings. Please continue to be vigilant, especially in break rooms.
