Staff, patients and visitors must all continue to wear masks — regardless of their vaccination status — in all Penn Medicine facilities.
Cloth masks are banned in Penn Medicine locations. Only surgical masks — not cloth masks — are allowed to be worn. A cloth mask can be worn over a surgical mask, but it cannot be the sole face covering. If you are wearing a cloth mask and do not have a surgical mask, we will give you a surgical mask to wear instead.
