Cuero Health Launches Universal Masking in All Facilities During COVID-19 Period

Cuero, TX—In response to COVID-19 and in keeping with patient safety practices, Cuero Regional Hospital launched a universal masking policy last Thursday in line with CDC best practices. Per the policy, all Cuero Health employees, visitors and patients are required to wear a mask or face covering while in the facility.

Outpatient, ER, Clinic, or therapy patients without a mask or face covering will be issued a mask upon entering a Cuero Health facility. Outpatient, ER, or Clinic visitors without a mask or face covering will be instructed to wait outside or in your car until patient is ready for discharge. If visitor must accompany patient, a face covering or blue cone mask may be given to visitor. With the new policy, inpatient visitors will not be allowed in the facility without a mask or face covering.

“We appreciate your patience and support as we make these changes to protect everyone in our facilities. The masks worn can be homemade masks, as well as clinical masks. Protecting our face from the spread of germs is so important. We continue to stress to all that enter to practice good handwashing practices as well and do not touch your face. We are all in this together, trying to do the next right thing to protect ourselves and our loved ones from COVID-19,” said Lynn Falcone, CEO of Cuero Health.
