Health Care Mask Requirements

A Kentucky executive order requires patients, visitors and employees to wear masks in patient care facilities such as hospitals and doctors’ offices beyond June 11, 2021. Norton Healthcare requires children ages 2 and older to wear masks in health care settings.

Norton Children’s Hospital is Kentucky and Southern Indiana’s only full-service, free-standing pediatric hospital. Along with its predecessor hospitals, Norton Children’s Hospital has cared for children for more than a century without regard to their families’ ability to pay.

The 300-bed hospital is Louisville’s only Level I Pediatric Trauma Center, provides the area’s highest-level neonatal intensive care unit and serves as the primary pediatric teaching facility for the University of Louisville School of Medicine.
