AnMed requires face coverings

UPSTATE — AnMed Health will now require all patients arriving for appointments or procedures to wear a face covering.

This policy applies to patients arriving at all hospital campuses, emergency rooms, outpatient facilities and physician practices. Those who do not have a mask may use an alternative such as a bandana, scarf or sports buff.

For the safety of patients and staff, AnMed Health’s visitor restrictions remain unchanged and in place at all AnMed Health locations.

As businesses in the community begin to reopen, AnMed Health encourages residents to continue wearing face coverings whenever in public and to continue practicing social distancing and good hand hygiene.
