The health and safety of Equitas Health patients is our top priority.
We follow the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for updates about COVID-19 cases and masking rules.
The number of COVID-19 cases in hospitals across the country has dropped, and on May 11, 2023, the CDC said COVID-19 was no longer a Public Health Emergency.
How does the CDC track COVID-19?
The CDC tracks the number of hospital stays due to COVID-19 by county in each state. When that level is high, people are asked to wear a mask in public to prevent the spread of the virus.
The number of cases in Ohio hospitals right now is at a low level, and people do not have to wear a mask.
Equitas Health no longer requires patients and staff to wear masks. This includes:
What if I feel more at ease wearing a mask?
Mask use in public and at Equitas Health is up to each person. Patients, clients, and staff can choose to wear a mask at any time.
Equitas Health patients, clients, and staff DO have to wear a mask if:
If you don’t have a mask when you arrive, Equitas Health will provide one for you.
People who test positive should wear a mask for 10 days from their positive test result or 10 days from the first signs of the virus.
You can get a COVID-19 test at our health centers or get vaccinated in one of our pharmacies. For more info, visit equitashealth.com/covid-19.
