Main Line Health, with hospitals and other medical facilities across several southeastern Pennsylvania counties, has announced a temporary return to masking because of what it says is a significant increase in COVID-19, flu and RSV cases.
The order takes effect Thursday, Jan. 4 and will last for at least two weeks.
This applies to patients, employees, medical staff and visitors in clinical and common areas at all of its locations.
“If you do not have a mask with you, one will be provided to you when you arrive at a Main Line Health facility,” the health system wrote on its website.
The temporary masking requirement will be in place at all Main Line Health hospitals and medical facilities, including:
Lankenau Medical Center
Bryn Mawr Hospital
Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital
Mirmont Treatment Center inpatient and outpatient locations
Main Line Health Concordville
Main Line Health King of Prussia
Main Line Health Exton Square
