MASKING WHILE AT BAY AREA HOSPITAL

Oregon state has eased the masking guidelines for indoor public places. Health care settings that provide direct patient care will still be requiring employees, patients, and visitors to wear a mask per the Oregon Health Authority OAR 333-019-1011 and CDC. Masks are required throughout an entire patient’s care cycle – when a patient first comes to the facility until the time of discharge.  This includes such areas as waiting areas, patient rooms, and treatment rooms.

To help protect our healthcare providers and the people they care for, please continue to wear a mask while visiting Bay Area Hospital and Bay Area Cancer Center. All patients and visitors will still need to be screened at entrances upon entering Bay Area Hospital and Bay Area Cancer Center. There are some common, non-patient care delivery areas in the hospital where masking is not required. This includes the first floor corridor, staff offices and breakrooms, cafeteria, and meeting rooms. Thank you for doing your part in helping improve the health of our community every day.
