Face Mask Mandate for Patients and Visitors Suspended

TITUSVILLE, FL (March 1, 2022) – Effective immediately, Parrish Healthcare will suspend its face mask mandate in accordance with new CDC guidance. Visitors are not required to wear a face mask inside Parrish Healthcare facilities including Parrish Medical Center. COVID-19 screening upon entry will also be suspended. However, individuals experiencing cold or flu symptoms should avoid visiting a hospitalized patient for their safety and protection.

According to the CDC, Brevard County’s COVID-19 community level is medium. For those who are immunocompromised or high risk for severe disease, it is recommended you talk with your healthcare provider about whether you need to wear a mask or take other precautions. CDC continues to recommend keeping up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters; follow recommendations for isolation and quarantine including getting tested if you are exposed to COVID-19 or have symptoms.

Parrish Healthcare care partners (employees, volunteers, medical staff, etc.) who are not fully vaccinated for COVID-19 are required to wear face masks while at work in accordance with CMS mandated vaccination program for healthcare workers.
