Masks for You & Your Family
Middlesex Health is now asking anyone who comes to our facilities for an appointment to wear a face mask.
In addition, Governor Lamont has signed an executive order directing all Connecticut residents to wear a cloth face covering while in public places that don't allow for social distancing (six feet from others at all times). The CDC has also recommended that all Americans wear a cloth face covering if they have to leave home for essential reasons, such as grocery shopping or going to the pharmacy.
Preparing for Your Appointment
Fortunately, it is easy to make your own mask at home—with or without sewing!
When you come in for your appointment, you can wear a surgical mask if you have one or you can wear a cloth face covering.
Wearing a cloth mask also helps conserve N95 respirators and surgical masks for health care staff caring for COVID-19 patients.
If you are concerned that you or a loved one has symptoms of COVID-19, the first step is to contact your primary care provider.
They will be able to recommend the next best steps for your and your family.
Thanks to your generosity, Middlesex Health has collected enough cloth masks for our team! However, we are still collecting masks for members of our community who may not be able to make their own face coverings.
