COVID-19 Information

Masking Policy Updates!

Effective Wednesday, March 8, at midnight: Cheyenne Regional will modify our mask policy at the hospital and all off-site locations, including our Cheyenne Regional Medical Group clinics.

While this marks the first time in three years that staff, providers, patients and volunteers will no longer be required to wear masks in our clinical settings, there are exceptions where masking is still required.

What’s Changing:

  • Visitors and patients who do not have respiratory symptoms will no longer be required to wear a mask.
  • Fully vaccinated staff, providers, volunteers and contractors (primary series of COVID-19 vaccine, excluding the booster) are no longer required to mask in clinical locations.

Exceptions to Mask Policy:

  • Staff, providers or volunteers with flu and/or COVID-19 vaccine exemptions and who are not fully vaccinated need to continue wearing a mask until flu/respiratory season concludes which is April 1, 2023. A masking requirement may be reinstated the following flu/respiratory season which typically begins in October for those staff, providers or volunteers who are unvaccinated.
  • Employees experiencing cold or other illness symptoms (but who still feel well enough to work) should wear a mask.
  • Patients and visitors who have cold or flu symptoms will be asked to wear a mask.
  • Patients, employees and visitors who have been in close contact with people with COVID-19 or influenza should wear a mask in the hospital and clinics for at least 5 days after exposure even if they are asymptomatic
  • Infection prevention precautions should be followed for all patients, including those in isolation precaution. This may require masking or other personal protective equipment (PPE) to be worn.

Staff, providers, partners, patients, volunteers and visitors are welcome to continue wearing a mask if they prefer. Please respect those individuals who choose to continue wearing a mask.
We are so very excited to be at this point in this long journey. Thank you for understanding as we made decisions that were in the best interest of the Cheyenne Regional system and our community.
