Sorry for cross posting.

We currently screen all patients at entrances to the outpatient clinics with temp and short question list.

We require surgical masks for those that have respiratory symptoms.

We do not have enough surgical type masks for everyone.

I think we should require ALL patients in our facilities to wear “face covering.”  Inform patients when they make appointments and again with their reminder.

Perhaps have inexpensive cloth squares available at entrances for patients to make a kerchief as face covering.

Is anyone enforcing a “face covering” rule for all their outpatients?
