August 20, 2020 5:00 pm Patient Management Curi Publishes New Resources on Mask Usage Curi has updated our patient management FAQs to include new guidance on the use of masks and face coverings during in-office visits, education for patients on the importance of wearing a mask, and statements about mask exemption documentation from the federal government. In addition, sample work and school releases for patients who cannot tolerate masks are available here. SHARE News & Knowledge All Curi recommendations are based on current CDC criteria at the time of publication. CDC guidance for SARS-CoV-2 infection may, or may not, be adopted by state and local health departments to respond to rapidly changing local circumstances. Providers should always check with their local health department to see if the CDC’s guidance on any given topic has been modified (particularly if more restrictive) from the CDC’s recommended guidelines. Follow this link https://www.cdc.gov/publichealthgateway/healthdirectories/index.html for contact information to your state/local health department. If local recommendations vary from those of the CDC, and you are unsure what recommendations to follow, then it is safer to follow the more restrictive guidelines/recommendations.
