The CDC announced on May 13, 2021, that people fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can go without masks indoors and outdoors. However, certain higher risk settings, such as health care facilities, are excluded from this guidance. Local Health Care Systems, including Aurora, Bellin, and Prevea have announced that masking and social distancing will continue to be required at all area health care facilities to protect the safety and well-being of our patients, visitors and communities.
