Following the April 9 mask mandate expiration in the State of Alabama, Highlands Medical Center will continue to require staff, patients and visitors to wear a mask when inside the facility. According to the Alabama Department of Public Health, masks remain one of the most successful tools to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
“Safety is our top priority at Highlands,” said Dr. Lonnie Albin, Chief Medical Officer at HMC. “Wearing masks has shown to be effective in helping reduce the spread of COVID-19. We are thankful the spread of the virus has slowed down in our state, and will continue to do what we can to help this trend continue.”
