Masking Policy

To comply with The Joint Commission and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, as well as a city of Birmingham order, all employees, patients, and visitors are required to wear a mask or face covering inside and outside all UAB Medicine facilities.

To preserve our limited supply of masks for medical care providers, 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.
