Holland Hospital COVID-19 Update

Face Coverings Must be Worn Inside Holland Hospital and Outpatient Health Care Settings

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently lifted the mask mandate for individuals who are fully vaccinated. While this is a step forward in resuming the activities people participated in prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to understand the updated recommendations for fully vaccinated individuals only apply to non-healthcare settings.

Hospitalized patients and patients seeking medical treatment may have weakened immune systems. Due to this risk, Holland Hospital is maintaining existing infection control protocols that require masking for all individuals within our facilities, as recommended by the CDC.

The updated CDC guidance on masking reflects the evidence that vaccines are safe and effective and will allow our community to return to a sense of normalcy.
