Effective April 12, 2023, Mount Nittany Health patients and visitors are no longer required to mask except when symptomatic or COVID-19 positive. This applies to all Mount Nittany Health locations with a few exceptions that have been communicated to those impacted.

Any patient or visitor who would like to wear a mask is welcome to, and we will continue to provide masks for anyone who chooses to wear one.

“Mount Nittany Health’s first priority has always been the safety of our people, patients, and visitors,” said Tiffany Cabibbo, DSc, MSN, RN, CENP, Executive Vice President, Patient Care Services and Chief Nursing Officer. “To this end, our team has continually monitored recommendations, mandates, and guidance from the CDC, OSHA and state and local public health organizations, and has set our policies accordingly.”

Additionally, visitation will return to pre-pandemic policies and spaces such as the cafeteria will return to pre-COVID-19 setup and capacity.

According to Upendra Thaker, MD, FIPP, Chief Medical Officer, “We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and CDC, state and local requirements and make adjustments in the future, if necessary.”
Everyone at Mount Nittany Health is grateful for the support and cooperation of our community members as we have adapted our policies to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. We thank everyone for working together to fulfill our mission of “Healthier People. Stronger Community.”
