Newsroom Universal masking for visitors and patients begins June 2 Posted by Kaitlyn McConnell on June 1, 2020 Beginning Tuesday, June 2, anyone entering a CoxHealth facility will be required to wear a mask or face covering. This decision includes both visitors and patients. Please note that the health system's visitor restrictions are still in place at this time. Exceptions to this rule include children seeking care who are under age 2, and individuals with pre-existing conditions that make breathing difficult. CoxHealth leadership feels that this direction is important to keeping patients and employees safe, and helps limit the local spread of COVID-19.
