CRH makes masks voluntary for most in its facilities

Columbus Regional Health has rolled back its mask requirements for COVID-19.

The hospital announced this week that masks were optional in its facilities with a few exceptions.

The exceptions are:

  • If you have had a close-contact exposure to COVID-19 within the last 10 days
  • Or if you are experiencing any potential symptoms of COVID-19

The rule change affects staff, patients, and visitors.

Hospital officials say that CRH facilities will remain mask-optional as long as the local Community Levels remain in the Low or Medium range.
