Masking to Continue at Hanover & District Hospital
June 10, 2022
Hanover & District Hospital (HDH) will continue to require masks to be worn by all individuals entering the hospital, including staff, outpatients and visitors, beyond June 11, 2022. This requirement is consistent with our hospital partners in the region.
In addition to continuing to require masking, active screening of all individuals entering the hospital will be maintained. Proof of vaccination will no longer be required for visitors.
“In high-risk setting, such as hospitals, we have the duty to protect our patients who are vulnerable to the COVID-19 virus, as well as the staff and physicians that are needed to care for patients. HDH strongly believes that maintaining our masking requirements is a safety precaution that must be upheld indefinitely to safeguard our staff, physicians, and patients,” states Dana Howes, President and Chief Executive Officer.
We ask that you continue be respectful to our staff as we work together to provide a safe environment for our physicians, staff and patients.
