Masking Policy 

MercyOne Iowa Heart Center has updated its masking guidelines. At this time, masking is encouraged, but is not required. Patients and visitors should mask in our facilities if they are currently ill with respiratory symptoms, have a COVID-19 diagnosis, or have been exposed to COVID-19 in the past 10 days, or are immunocompromised. Masking will be required when the COVID Community Transmission Rate is high.

MercyOne Iowa Heart Center is committed to the safety of our patients, visitors, colleagues, physicians and the communities we serve. Visitor restrictions are updated as needed to help protect the safety of our patients, colleagues and community.

Visitors are welcome and masking is encouraged for everyone, including visitors or patients who are immunocompromised.

PERSONS SHOULD NOT VISIT IF they have any of the following conditions within 10 days of the date of visitation:

  • Tested positive for COVID-19
  • Been exposed to COVID-19
