Temporary Mask Mandate Effective 6.16.22« Return
Patient & Visitor Masking Policy – Updated 6.16.22
St. James Parish Hospital’s masking policy is based on the transmission rate of COVID in St. James Parish. St. James Parish now is considered a “high transmission” area due to the amount of positive COVID cases.
Therefore, effective 6.16.22, employees, patients and visitors are required to wear masks.
St. James Parish Hospital has seen an increase in COVID-positive cases and admissions; however, at this time hospitalizations are manageable. We will continue to monitor transmission levels and communicate changes as needed.
We appreciate your help in slowing the spread to keep hospitalizations at a manageable rate.
