Flu Mask Policy Now in Effect
Personnel who have not received a flu shot due to a medical or religious exemption are required to wear a surgical or procedural mask in patient areas across the main and distributed campuses for the duration of flu season. The end of flu season will be determined by Infection Control, based on state and local epidemiology and ongoing flu cases. Personnel will be notified when masks are no longer required. Contact your manager if you have any questions about our flu vaccination policy. Learn more.
