On May 11, 2023, the Department of Health and Human Services declaration of COVID-19 as a Public Health Emergency will come to an end. As restrictions ease around the country, Blue Ridge Health remains dedicated to the health and well-being of our friends and neighbors in Western North Carolina. We thoroughly adhere to all state and federal guidelines for keeping our clinics, dental offices, pharmacies, and behavioral health sites as safe as possible for our patients and staff.
At this time, patients are no longer required to wear a mask at Blue Ridge Health unless they have specific symptoms, such as: cough, fever, congestion, runny nose, shortness of breath, confirmed or suspected COVID.
Our clinics are fully open and operating as usual.
We know that the last few years have taken a toll on the physical and mental health of our patients. We encourage everyone across WNC to schedule appointments to address any physical, mental, or behavioral health needs that they may have delayed taking care of during this Public Health Emergency.
We also encourage our patients to make sure they are fully immunized and boosted against COVID-19 and its variants. Click here to find a Blue Ridge Health near you.
