Universal Masking

Bigfork Valley implemented universal masking on April 8, 2020. Every employee, visitor and patient entering the facility is being screened and masked to help protect you and those around you. This protocol was implemented to help prevent the transmission from individuals that may be infected but are not currently experiencing symptoms. If you have a face mask, please wear it when you enter Bigfork Valley or when you visit public places. If you do not have one, one will be provided to you when entering our facility.

We continue to monitor and implement recommendations from the MN Department of Health (MDH) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We appreciate your continued patience, support and understanding as we implement changes in the best interest of our community. 

For more information about masking for source control and transmission prevention, visit the CDC Website.
