If you are visiting the Guthrie Cortland Medical Center, remember your mask. In a statement released to X101 News, a spokesperson says, “While we are encouraged that New York, Pennsylvania and other states across the country have discontinued certain masking requirements, Guthrie continues its commitment to protecting patients, visitors and staff by requiring masking in all of its facilities in both New York and Pennsylvania.”
“Guthrie’s continued masking requirements are in accordance with current CDC guidelines which encourage masking in healthcare facilities.”
All patients, visitors and staff must wear a mask while inside a Guthrie facility, regardless of vaccination status.
Guthrie will continue to reevaluate this policy as new information becomes available regarding infection prevention evidence and changing disease dynamics.
The Guthrie statement adds that it appreciates the community’s continued cooperation with this important public health measure.
