At Mount Nittany Health, the safety of our patients, visitors, and employees is our top priority.

Due to an observed increase in respiratory illness (flu, RSV, and Covid) cases within the community, our healthcare system, and among our team, we are taking the following precautionary measures to protect our patients, visitors, and employees.

Effective January 12th at 7 am, we are implementing a masking requirement for patients, visitors, and employees in patient care clinical and common areas within the Medical Center, clinics, and all Physician Group offices.

The masking requirement will remain in place for 14 days, and then we will re-evaluate with the goal of removing the requirement by January 26th.

Thank you for your cooperation.
