In response to a recently revised recommendation from the CDC, face coverings will no longer be required at Pella Regional.
Pella Regional Health Center says it is removing the mask requirement for patients, visitors, staff, and volunteers, regardless of vaccination status. This change is effective immediately.
Out of respect for our patients and staff, masks are strongly encouraged if you have symptoms of an infectious disease such as cough, fever, sore throat, shortness of breath, or loss of taste or smell.
Pella Regional Health Center remains committed to providing a family-centered care environment and we continue to follow strict cleaning protocols. We also offer hand sanitizer and mask stations throughout our facility for patient, visitor, and staff use. It says it will continue to monitor COVID-19 community spread as defined by CDC and in the event that community transmission levels are high, the need to reinstate masking requirements may arise.
