Masking Policies

Frederick Health is committed to providing you with a safe environmental. As part of that commitment, we consistently monitor the ever-changing transmission levels of respiratory illnesses such as COVID-19 and RSV. As a result, our masking policies reflect the most accurate information available.

While respiratory illness is still impacting our operations and our community, the existing masking policies for Frederick Health team members, patients, and visitors were recently reviewed and have been updated. Those updates are described below. There are two distinct categories: Frederick Health Ambulatory sites such as our Primary Care, Urgent Care offices, and the Frederick Health Hospital.

Ambulatory Locations:

Mask wearing will be optional for visitors, patients, and team members at our Ambulatory sites.

Frederick Health Hospital:

Mask wearing will be optional for visitors, patients, and team members.


Should you have an questions regarding the masking policy at any of our locations, please speak to a reception area/front desk or a staff member. You may also contact our Service Excellence Department by phone at 240-566-3564 or by email at

We all understand that the respiratory illness response is a changing situation, as a result this policy is subject to change. We thank you for your ongoing patience.
