UofL Health is lifting its universal masking requirement next week.
Leaders with UofL Health decided to lift the requirement on Feb. 6, according to a release.
Masks will not have to be worn by team members, patients and visitors.
“We will not discourage anyone from wearing a mask if they wish,” the release states.
In addition, mandatory COVID-19 testing for admission/procedures will end and testing will only need to be done for those showing symptoms.
UofL Health is a fully integrated regional academic health system with seven hospitals, four medical centers, nearly 200 physician practice locations and more than 1,000 providers in Louisville and the surrounding counties, including southern Indiana, with additional access to UofL Health through a partnership with Carroll County Memorial Hospital. With more than 12,000 team members – physicians, surgeons, nurses, pharmacists and other highly skilled health care professionals, UofL Health is focused on one mission—one purpose—delivering patient-centered care to each and every patient—each and every day.
