Northern Arizona Healthcare develops new mask recommendations

Your safety is our top priority at Northern Arizona Healthcare, which is why we continue to update our operations as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.

To help prevent the further spread of COVID-19 within our communities, we will now ask all patients to wear a droplet, or surgical, mask when they enter any of our facilities for their safety and the safety of our caregivers. Patients will also see that our teams providing care will also wear a droplet mask.

Updating our mask recommendations allows us to better protect all patients as well as our caregivers. This precaution, along with grouping suspected COVID-19 patients and isolating them from other patients, continues to make our facilities a safe place to seek treatment for all urgent and emergency care. If you are experiencing a health episode that is not COVID-19 related but requires immediate attention, please seek care as you would normally.

Northern Arizona Healthcare treats patients in our Emergency Departments at Flagstaff Medical Center, Verde Valley Medical Center and at the Sedona Campus, as well as urgent, but not life-threatening illness and injury at Immediate Care at our Camp Verde Campus.
