Patients & Visitors Asked to Wear Facial Covering or Mask

Beginning today (Monday, April 27), UnityPoint Health - Meriter is requiring all patients and visitors at all Meriter facilities to wear a face covering or mask to help slow the spread of COVID-19.  

Patients and visitors are asked to bring their own face covering or mask to wear. If a patient or visitor does not have a mask, Meriter will provide one. This updated masking guidance is based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Joint Commission. The CDC has provided guidance on making, wearing and cleaning masks.
