ROCKFORD — Beginning May 4, OSF HealthCare Saint Anthony Medical Center will require anyone entering to wear a mask.

Exceptions are made for those younger than two years old or those with medical conditions that prohibit wearing a mask.

Patients will be given a mask to wear while interacting with medical staff if they don’t have one of their own. Visitors and vendors will also be asked to wear a personal mask. If a personal mask is not available, a disposable mask will be provided.

All OSF Mission Partners will also be required to wear masks in public spaces, whether personal or provided by OSF HealthCare. OSF Mission Partners who provide direct patient care will be issued appropriate personal protective equipment by OSF.
