Norton brings back mask mandate

Norton Healthcare in Louisville, Ky., plans to require all patients, employees and visitors to wear masks beginning Feb. 3, ABC affiliate WHAS reported Feb. 1.

The health system said an accrediting agency recommended reinstating a mask requirement based on data about the community transmission of COVID-19 in Jefferson County. The mandate is in place for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals, and the health system did not give a timeline for lifting it.

Norton's plans to require masks come days after UofL Health announced plans to end mask requirements on Jan. 30.
