Some hospitals and hospital systems across the country are reinstating mask policies well over three years after the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

Major mask mandates that dominated the country for months on end — including the controversial mask mandate for air travel, which the courts struck down — have come and gone. However, some entities, including schools and some workplaces, have brought them back, at least on a short-term basis, citing rising cases of the coronavirus.

Massachusetts’ Baystate Health is among those bringing back masking, requiring those entering patient rooms or care areas to wear a mask.

The report quotes Dr. Andrew Artenstein, Baystate Health’s chief physician executive and chief academic officer, as saying the decision to bring back the mask requirement will “protect the safety and health of [their] patients, visitors, and employees.”

Other hospitals, including in Chicago, Illinois and in New Jersey, are expected to follow suit.

In a Facebook post last week, Baystate health announced:

Since late August, we have seen a steady trend of increasing COVID-19 cases. We expect this trend to increase. As of today, Friday, September 15, we move into the Yellow Tier.

Starting today, masks are required in patient rooms and patient care areas for visitors and will be available at the entrances. Masks are optional in common spaces such as the cafeteria and in corridors.
