About the video: What if I forget my mask?

Learn what to do when you forget to bring your mask to an appointment.

Video Transcription

We do have a mandatory masking policy. That means that everybody needs to wear a mask if they’re going to receive care. We do have a limited number of masks that we can loan out to people for temporary use during their visit. We prefer people to bring their own, if possible, because we don’t have a ton of those to go around. But, in a pinch, we do have that as an option. When the patient finishes with their visit, we collect that back from them. It goes into a bin, and then those are all laundered every night, and so they’re fresh and clean for reuse for another patient who might come in on a different day.
