Mask Mandate Relaxed in Healthcare Facilities:

The updated executive order issued by Governor Pritzker on October 17, 2022, states that face coverings are no longer required in all healthcare facilities but are still recommended in areas of high community transmission (click here for the CDC guidelines).

The CDC continue to suggest that healthcare facilities screen the health conditions of the patients in the following three criteria.

  1. a positive viral test for SARS-CoV-2

  2. symptoms of COVID-20, or

  3. close contact with someone with SARS-CoV-2 infection (for patients and visitors)

If you have any questions, please call our office for clarification.

For minor patient(s), we continue to request only one parent/guardian accompany the minor patient to avoid crowding in the reception area.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
