All Patients & Visitors At HSN Must Still Where A Mask

Health Sciences North

**Important** HSN is reminding all patients and visitors to wear a mask when coming to the hospital as an added step to reduce the spread of germs and protect vulnerable patients. Handmade masks are acceptable, as are those available at retailers in the community. Patients will still be seen in the Emergency Department, regardless if they are wearing a mask. Patients going for a procedure where they must remove their mask will be asked to store it with their personal items. Visitors must wear a mask at all times when in the hospital.  
 
 Masks serve as an added step to protect others from your germs when physical distancing is challenging or not possible, such as getting into an elevator. A mask is not a replacement for handwashing or physical distancing. Patients and visitors coming to the hospital should continue to practice safe physical distancing of 2 meters, wherever possible, and regular handwashing, especially when entering and exiting the building.
