Masking Policy

Help us slow the spread of COVID-19. Protect yourself and the ones you love by wearing a mask, social distancing, washing your hands, and staying home if you are sick.


All employees, patients, and visitors are required to wear a mask or face covering inside all UAB Medicine facilities.

We ask that patients and visitors arrive wearing their own mask or face covering. These can be cloth masks, scarfs, or commercially made masks. There are several easy ways to make masks at home, including options that do not require sewing.
