COVID status effective Sept. 22, 2022: Green zone
Face masks are not required in USA Health areas in which direct patient care is not provided.
The COVID-positivity rate in our community is low enough that we now can return to the Green Zone. Representatives from our hospitals and clinics should replace the Red Zone signs at their entrances with the previously provided Green Zone signs. Please save the Red Zone signs in case they are needed in the future. If you are unable to locate your Green Zone signs, please contact Kitsy Bridges at firstname.lastname@example.org.
