COVID-19: New masking policy, vaccinations, testing and general information. Learn more


New Masking Policy

Effective May 11, 2023, masking will be optional for patients, visitors and MetroHealth employees.

Due to the vulnerability of patients in the Blood and Marrow Transplant Unit, universal masking remains required upon entry, and masking will remain in effect for any acutely affected COVID patients. Masks are also highly recommended for those who have respiratory symptoms or have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19.


Vaccinations and boosters are our best defense

CDC recommends COVID-19 primary series vaccines for everyone ages 6 months and older, if eligible.

Fully vaccinated individuals 5+ are eligible to receive a COVID-19 booster, if eligible.
