Mask Policy

Ver en Español

As part of our continued efforts to protect our health care workers, our patients, and the community, facility-issued face masks are required in all Mass General Brigham locations, including in inpatient areas, emergency departments, outpatient settings, and peri-procedural areas.

  • When you arrive at our facilities, you will be given a procedural or surgical mask to wear. If you have a mask from home, you will be asked to replace it with the mask we provide to wear during your stay or visit.
  • Inpatients must wear the mask while outside of their room and when staff or visitors enter the room.
  • All other patients must wear the mask for the duration of their visit or encounter.

Please note: Although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Commonwealth of Massachusetts have lifted restrictions so that fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear masks in many settings, patients and visitors to Mass General Brigham hospitals and health care facilities must continue to wear a facility-issued mask at all times when you are at our facilities. Employees will continue to do so, as well. This is for the health and safety of everyone in our care.
