North Country Hospital (NCH) has relaxed the universal masking requirements that have been in place since the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. Several hospitals in Vermont and across the nation are relaxing mask mandates and requirements. This means that if free of any respiratory symptoms, patients, visitors, and guests will no longer have to wear a mask as they enter any building on campus or move about the facility. There are some exceptions to the mask rollback, which include a mask requirement if one has tested positive or been exposed to someone testing positive in the past 10 days; if one is currently experiencing symptoms of a respiratory illness; or if one has a healthcare provider recommendation or personal preference to wear a mask. Additionally, masks may still be required in certain procedural settings. The hospital will continue to provide masks for those who choose to wear one.
