U.S.NEWS – Starting Tuesday, Mass General Brigham, the largest health system in Massachusetts, implemented its mask requirement for health care staff who directly interact with patients. Masks during the pandemic took on a political dimension separate from their public health value, and some recent requirements have stopped short of mandates for the general public at these facilities. “Patients and visitors will be strongly encouraged to wear a facility-issued face mask during direct interactions with staff in patient rooms and clinical care areas where direct care is provided. Patients and visitors do not have to mask if they prefer not to,” Mass General Brigham said in a statement.
