Staff WriterBusiness, Police & Fire, RSS, RSS-Business

Due to a decreased rate of respiratory illnesses in the community, all Beebe Healthcare locations will no longer require a mask for patients, visitors, and team members, starting 7 a.m. Tuesday.

Patients and visitors who feel more comfortable wearing a mask at a Beebe should continue to do so, and team members will wear when if requested.

Masks will be required in certain scenarios such as patients experiencing respiratory illness symptoms or who have tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 10 days. Visitors who are sick or who have been exposed to someone who is ill should stay home. Everyone should remember to use hand hygiene practices to prevent the spread of illnesses, too.

Beebe Healthcare and Beebe Medical Group will continue to closely monitor levels of respiratory illnesses and risk for exposure and will adjust its masking requirements accordingly.

Talk to a primary care provider about staying up to date respiratory illnesses vaccines like flu, RSV, and COVID-19. Need a primary care provider? Call 302-645-3332 for an appointment. For more information on masking and visitation, see our visitor information page.
