Valued Patients –
In accordance with the April 3rd, 2023 masking guidance by the Washington State Department of Health for the Greater Seattle Area, and in line with policies set forth by Swedish Hospital and the University of Washington, SeattleNTC is recommending, but no longer requiring, masks within our clinics.
Beginning June 19, 2023, in accordance with U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s updated guidelines, respiratory data from the county and state and hospital COVID-19 admissions data, masking for patients and visitors will now be optional. Some exceptions apply for patients who are high risk. COVID-19 vaccination is also strongly recommended for all visitors entering our clinic spaces.
Safety and high-quality care for our patients are our highest priorities. SeattleNTC strongly encourages masking and hand hygiene for all persons entering our clinic spaces. Staff will continue to inquire about symptoms for patients visiting the clinics.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns about our COVID-19 policies, please feel free to give us a call or email us at: email@example.com.
We appreciate your continued understanding and assistance in keeping all of our patients and staff safe and healthy.
