Mary Greeley Hospital in Ames will begin requiring masks today (Monday, Dec. 19) due to Story County entering a “high COVID-19 transmission” level.
“This applies to all visitors, providers and staff,” a Facebook post from the hospital says. “We will continue to monitor transmission data and will re-evaluate masking requirements at the appropriate time.”
