Mask Requirements at U of U Health Expanded to Include Non-Clinical Areas

In recent weeks, Utah has seen a steady increase in COVID-19 cases. This is primarily due to the spread of the highly contagious Delta variant – a concerning national trend that has also resulted in an increase of patient hospitalizations.

In response, the CDC updated its masking guidance by recommending individuals once again wear masks in public indoor settings, even for those who are vaccinated. This updated guidance has prompted U of U Health to revise current masking policies in order to help keep everyone safe.

Although masks are currently required in buildings where direct clinical care is provided, U of U Health leadership is expanding this requirement to include ALL U of U Health facilities. We understand that many employees work in buildings that are shared with other organizations and may not be exclusive to U of U Health. In these instances, the expectation is that all U of U Health employees and students will wear a mask.

Learn more about the updated Universal Face Covering (Masking) and Eye Protection Policy by clicking on the links below:

We all look forward to the day when face masks are no longer required at U of U Health. Until then, thank you for your continued diligence with masking and for recognizing our responsibility to protect our patients and each other.
