Masks Still Required At BVHS Locations Until Further Notice

Blanchard Valley Health System says as COVID-19 guidelines change they will continue to work in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Ohio Department of Health while providing healthcare services to the community.

“Masks will still be required at all BVHS locations until further notice,” explained Roxanne Williams, director of corporate quality, associate and patient safety.

“Healthcare settings are the exception to the CDC guidelines. We are still in a pandemic and our ultimate goal is to keep everyone as safe as possible. Therefore, we thank people in advance for their patience and understanding.”

All associates, providers, patients and visitors are asked to continue wearing a mask, even if fully vaccinated, to protect vulnerable patient populations on their campuses.

Visitation is now open on BVHS campuses. Visitors must remain masked and maintain social distancing.

The cafeteria is open with socially distanced seating. A mask does not have to be worn when sat at a table and eating.
