Why We Mask

Patients and visitors are required to wear a face mask while at Glendive Medical Center facilities. Here's why:

  • CDC recommends that masks be worn in health care settings, even for fully vaccinated people.
  • Health care is different. We are taking care of very sick, vulnerable patients and it's our duty to protect them.
  • We're not through the pandemic and COVID-19 is still in our community.
  • Community vaccination rates aren't high enough to relax masking standards here.
  • Masks and vaccines are proven to work to slow the spread of viruses like COVID-19 and are an easy way to protect our staff, guests, and patients.
