Owensboro Health facilities are requiring the masks to be worn in all facilities as COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations rise in the area.
Director of Marketing for Owensboro Health Brian Hamby said that they have seen double-digit cases in the hospitals for “a few weeks now” along with an increase in team members calling in with COVID-19.
“We want everyone to have a good, safe summer. It may be a good time to think about some precautions … just keep safety in mind and we hope this measure helps keep everyone safe and as healthy as possible,” Hamby said.
