Masks, social distancing and screening will continue at St. Charles facilities beyond June 30

BEND, Ore. – Though Oregon Gov. Kate Brown is planning to reopen the state June 30, leaving it up to individual counties to make decisions about masking and social distancing requirements, all St. Charles Health System hospitals and clinics will continue to require masking and social distancing. Screening for COVID-19 symptoms and checking temperatures will also continue at entrances regardless of a person’s vaccination status.
