If for any reason you must enter a Four County location, please bring and wear you personal facial mask. If you screen positive on screening questions, you may be asked to wear a procedural mask and triaged to separate wait room space. Please note that our staff will also be wearing their facial masks during an in-person visit and while moving through the building.
