During the pandemic, we all made hard adjustments to our daily lives. Routinely wearing a mask helped to keep everyone safe. Now with the lower number of COVID-19 cases in the community and the higher vaccination rates, we have been able to adjust again. Care Resources has ended our masking requirement for participants, visitors, and staff! This comes after a lot of thought and discussion. We talked with other health system leaders to ensure we were putting the best practices in place.
There are some situations which still require the use of masks, including:
- If you have cold-like symptoms.
- If you have a COVID-19 exposure (the clinical team will continue to coordinate testing after exposures).
- If Care Resources experiences an outbreak in the Day Center.
We know that ending the requirement to routinely wear a mask may bring concern to some who prefer it. Anyone may continue to wear a mask. Additionally, you may always request providers and staff to wear masks during visits. We want all participants to feel comfortable and safe! We will continue to protect and respect those who are at high risk or feel stress because of the new mask guidelines.
Please contact a member of the Care Resources team with any questions.
