We are excited to share we have updated our Visitor Guidelines effective April 3, 2023.

Effective Monday, April 3, masking for COVID-19 is no longer required on campus for visitors, employees or patients. Anyone may choose to wear a mask at their own discretion. Visitors will be expected to comply with Mercy’s current infection control practices as appropriate, which may include the use of facial masks. This policy will replace all other Visitor Guidelines (last updated 7.11.2022) until further notice.

If a visitor is displaying respiratory symptoms, such as a cough, they may be asked to wear a mask while in our facility.
