The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has lowered Palm Beach County's COVID-19 Community Level to "Medium".
As a result, Good Samaritan Medical Center is announcing a relaxation of COVID Processes, effective September 21, 2022. Please note the following changes below:
Masks will no longer be required in common areas.
Masking requirements remain in effect for clinical departments during direct patient care - all other staff will mask at their own discretion and/or by patient request.
We will continue to follow the Florida Legislature guidance on visitation. Our policy remains one visitor at a time, with the flexibility of exceptions to be determined by appropriate facility leadership. We will continue to provide self-screening information for our visitors on COVID-19 signs and symptoms upon entrance to the facility.
