As we move into the heart of the holiday season, I know many of you are seeing the dramatic increase of COVID cases across Maryland and the U.S. Throughout the pandemic, we’ve adjusted our policies to ensure the continued safety of our patients and staff, and we are now implementing some changes to promote the health and safety of our patients, staff, and community.
Effective Monday, December 27, all MOH practices will:
- Implement a NO VISITOR policy. Caregivers will only be provided access if the following criteria are met by the patient:
- Wheelchair-bound requiring assistance.
- Cognitive dysfunction.
- Translator needed.
- Leverage telemedicine visits as much as possible.
Thank you for your continued commitment as we work to keep each other, our patients, and our communities safe. Warmest wishes for a healthy and happy holiday season.
