Cuyuna Regional Medical Center reminds patients and visitors that the COVID-19 facemask mandate is still in place in health care settings. All people entering CRMC’s facilities who do not meet a medical exception are required to mask.
CRMC cares for some of our area’s most critically ill patients including patients who have weak immune systems, elderly and others who are at high risk for COVID-19 complications and deaths,” said Chief Nursing Officer Stacy Weldon. “Wearing a mask regardless of your vaccination status when you are at CRMC helps protect these vulnerable populations. We thank the public for their help in protecting our patients, staff and visitors.”
Minnesota's statewide mandate requiring the wearing of facemasks in public ended May 14 after new guidance from the CDC which says people fully vaccinated against COVID-19 don't need to wear one. However, the mandate is still in place on public transit, in health care settings and in public schools. Some businesses are also choosing to continue requiring masks to be worn.
CRMC’s visitor restrictions also continue to be in place. Access to CRMC is the main entrance from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and through the Emergency Department from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Entrance B is open for oncology patients only from 4:30 a.m.- 7 p.m. Monday-Friday. A simple wellness screening of symptoms will continue to be conducted for all those entering the facility.
