Masking Guidelines for Healthcare Settings

As reported on September 26, 2022 in The Hill, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is no longer recommending universal mask use at hospitals, nursing homes and other health care settings, unless those facilities are located in areas with high COVID-19 case rates. At publication, The Hill noted that “about 73 percent of the US is experiencing ‘high’ rates of transmission.”
