RMC Still Requiring Face Masks in Facilities

This week, the CDC relaxed their mask guidelines for the general public – but that doesn’t mean they’re not required in some places. 

Regional Medical Center is still requiring masks in their facilities – that also includes Regional Family Health, Regional Medical Home Care and Delaware County Public Health facilities.

RMC says that’s because they’re a healthcare facility under the regulations of Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services – so the CDC masking guidance does not apply.

They say as a health system, their duty is to safeguard the health and well-being of every patient who walks through their doors – and many who enter are immunocompromised or very sick and weak and therefore are at a high risk of severe illness should they get COVID-19.
