Entry and Screening * Any individuals entering the organization remain directed to enter only through the Emergency Department entrance and screening station. * Universal masking is in effect. * Individuals are encouraged to wear their own mask from home to conserve personal protective equipment (PPE) for use by health care workers at higher risk. * A mask will be provided to any individual who does not have one at the point of entry, or who requires a higher level of protection than the mask they arrive in.
