Mt. Nittany patients, visitors must wear masks
STATE COLLEGE –As an additional measure to protect patients, staff and community members against the spread of COVID-19, Mount Nittany Health is extending its employee masking requirement to patients and visitors at the Medical Center.
All patients and those visitors permitted under special circumstances must wear a mask when accessing the Medical Center. Patients and visitors are encouraged to wear their own masks from home. If needed, masks will be provided by the health system’s screening teams before patients and permitted visitors enter the facility; the masks should be reused as long as possible.
Screening procedures at all entrances and visitor restrictions remain in effect.
Also, lab and imaging services at offsite locations will be temporarily closed or operating under reduced hours beginning this week. Patients will be directed to the Medical Center for their care.
