To All Clients, Patients, Visitors and Associates,
As everyone is aware, June 15 brought changes to COVID-19 Pandemic protocols implemented in businesses across the State of California. However we as individuals may feel about these protocols, the mask mandates in particular have been both controversial and confusing to say the least! We at Serenity MD are trying our best to implement the standards required of our healthcare facility.
Our understanding of the statewide requirements ask us to keep the current mask policy in place because we are a healthcare facility: ALL INDIVIDUALS ENTERING OUR OFFICE ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR A MASK. The new mask protocols allowed by other businesses does NOT apply to the healthcare setting. When the new mask guidance for vaccinated individuals was initially released in May, the American Hospital Association (AHA) asked for a clarification to which the CDC emphasized that new masking recommendations for people fully vaccinated against COVID-19 DO NOT apply to health care settings.
We apologize in advance for any inconvenience, but please understand that our frontline staff are trying their best to serve you, our valuable patients, within the rules and requirements of the CDC and California Department of Public Health. We will gladly provide a complimentary mask upon request prior to entering our facility. Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation!
