• GREEN – OPTIONAL masking in ALL AREAS of MHP. This includes employees, patients, visitors, vendors, and business partners.
Regardless of MHP’s current masking requirements, precautions for staff interacting with patients identified as actually or potentially having COVID - 19 will remain in place.
Even at times when masking is optional, healthcare staff will continue complying with basic infection prevention and control practices such as hand hygiene and the use of appropriate personal protective equipment.
When the spread is low, we can enjoy seeing each other’s smiling faces again, but when transmission of the virus picks up, we should all be prepared to put our masks back on for the safety of not only ourselves but for the patients we serve.
