Masks Still Required in Healthcare Settings


Date: July 15, 2021

For: Immediate Distribution

 

 

Per CDC and CDPH guidelines and out of caution for the safety of all of our patients, visitors, and health care workers; we do still require masks to be worn at our facility, regardless of vaccination status.

The health and safety of our patients, visitors, and staff are the top priorities of the Seneca healthcare team. Extra precautions are in place to help keep individuals safe and reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Please wear a face mask that fits snugly but comfortably against the side of your face, is secured with ties or ear loops, and allows for breathing without restriction.

If you are not able to bring a mask from home, we will provide one. Masks are required at all times for staff, patients and visitors. If a medical condition prevents the use of a face mask, please notify a staff member immediately, so appropriate accommodations can be made.
