The CDC’s recent announcement that fully vaccinated people do not need to wear masks under most circumstances is truly an exciting step forward. However, this guidance specifically excludes healthcare settings.
While awaiting further information from the PA Department of Health, universal masking remains the policy at all Butler Healthcare System facilities for staff, providers, patients, and visitors – regardless of vaccine status.
– Cover your mouth and nose when in public spaces. Wash your hands frequently. Don’t touch your face. Cover coughs and sneezes.
– If you feel sick, stay home.
