To protect our staff and patients, masks continue to be required in all Family Care Network facilities.
On May 13, the CDC and Washington state released new guidelines removing the mask requirement for fully vaccinated people in certain indoor and outdoor settings. Healthcare facilities are not included in this change, and organizations can still legally require customers to wear masks.
Staff and patients are required to wear a mask in all our clinic and lab locations regardless of vaccination status. We will also continue with other precautions to reduce the risk of transmission (cleaning protocols, social distancing, etc.).
FCN may consider future changes to our policy. This decision will be based on a thorough review and understanding of the health and safety implications to our staff and patients. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation with our masking policy.
