MASK/FACE COVERING MANDATORY

- Visitors seen without a mask will be asked to wear one.
- Visitors MAY BE DENIED ACCESS if they refuse to comply with the mask policy. Exceptions are patients seeking emergency care and those unable to wear a mask.
- If masks are not worn appropriately, Trinity Health reserves the right to ask a visitor to leave.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends wearing a mask or cloth face covering as a safeguard against the spread of COVID-19, regardless of symptoms.
Trinity Health is extremely grateful for the dozens of individuals who have sewn cloth masks and crafted 3D face masks to shore up our supplies. We thank everyone for doing their part to protect each other and the community.
