In keeping with the newest CDC guidelines, all staff, physicians, and other providers are now required to wear masks when in KHN healthcare facilities as follows:
- All employees/ providers who come within 6 feet of patients during their workday are now required to wear at minimum an isolation mask throughout their shift, removing the mask only to eat and drink
- Employees who do not come within 6 feet from patients during their workday may wear an isolation mask or a cloth mask that has been approved for wear by their dept leader.
- Employees who choose to wear a cloth mask must agree to launder the mask daily.
- As a reminder, everyone must perform hand hygiene before and after touching their mask.
Mask wearing remains optional for employees and providers who work in non-healthcare facilities, including Prestige and the ASB Building.
