As a continued measure of protection against transmission of COVID-19, BarnesCare will initiate a universal masking policy starting Wednesday, May 6. That means everyone who enters a BarnesCare clinic will need to wear a face mask – including patients, visitors, team members, physicians or individuals who need to enter the building.
As we’ve learned, the virus is often spread before individuals begin experiencing symptoms. The new policy follows guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and is designed to protect against asymptomatic transmission.
