Masking Guidelines

Effective May 12, UnityPoint Health - Finley Hospital implemented universal masking for patients, visitors, and team members, due to increases in COVID-19 positivity rates, confirmed cases and that our community transmission level has remained at the substantial level for multiple weeks in a row.

This includes all outpatient departments and UnityPoint Clinic locations. 

Thank you for your coopering in helping keep our patients and team members safe when COVID-19 levels are higher in our communities.
