Masks Will Be Required In Patient Care Areas In Two Local Hospitals

The area's two big hospital networks will require everyone to wear masks in patient care areas starting this evening.

UR Medicine and Rochester Regional Health hope the policy will reduce the spread of the coronavirus. And they say it is a strategy that could keep health care workers safe.

All medical providers, staff, and visitors will be required to wear a surgical mask at all times.

The hospitals plans to say more at a news conference this morning.
