COVID-19 infection rates are on the rise in our region, fueled in large part by the Delta variant, which is actively present in our community. The CDC defines our region as experiencing “substantial community transmission.”
For this reason, Beacon Health System has announced that all associates, patients, and visitors are required to wear a mask at all times in any Beacon facility. This applies to Beacon Health & Fitness and our members as well, and is regardless of vaccination status. Both vaccinated and non-vaccinated individuals will need to wear a mask at all times while in any of our Beacon Health & Fitness clubs, effective Friday, August 6, 2021. We recommend paper, 3-ply masks which have proven more effective than cloth masks, bandanas, or “gaiters.”
The COVID Task Force at Beacon Health System made this proactive decision for the increased safety of not only our patients, club members and associates, but also their families, friends and colleagues.
We are proud to continue to make the health and safety of everyone in our community our highest priority. We understand that for many this news will be disappointing. We’d all hoped not to find ourselves in this position. But together, we can overcome this variant of the virus through increased vaccination rates. If you or a loved one have considered getting vaccinated, we urge you to do so.
