Are you visiting a loved one at Camden Clark?
Here’s a guide to what you need to know before you come to our facility.
- Employees, visitors, and patients will no longer be required to wear protective masks in our hospitals (inpatient) or clinics (outpatient) with just a few exceptions:
Employees entering an occupied, inpatient room or a patient room in an ED at a hospital to care or provide support to a patient must wear a mask. (So, an employee entering a vacant inpatient room to clean or service it does not need to be masked.)
Employees, visitors, or patients who are exhibiting respiratory symptoms (including but not limited to the following: fever, cough, runny or stuffy nose, sore throat, shortness of breath) must wear masks in all settings, both inpatient and outpatient, and in all public spaces. (Symptomatic inpatients are not required to wear masks in their patient rooms.)
Vaccine-exempt employees are still required to use N95 masks but only in areas where masking is required. For example, they are required to wear an N95 mask, instead of surgical mask, when entering an inpatient room of a non-COVID patient.2. In crowded waiting areas and lobbies, such as ED waiting areas, masks are strongly encouraged, but not required.
3. Inpatients must wear masks when they leave their rooms unless the masks impede their care.
4. Providers and employees who wish to wear a mask are free to do so – that’s your choice, and we respect that!
