While the CDC has updated national mask recommendations, and Governor Pritzker has reflected those changes here in Illinois, please note that these changes do not apply to healthcare settings.
The CDC and the State of Illinois still require mask wearing in healthcare facilities.
Because so many of our patients are younger than 12 and have not been vaccinated, Alzein Pediatrics requires all patients, all caregivers, all family members, and all staff to wear masks in our offices, waiting rooms, hallways, and restrooms.
Please cover your entire nose, mouth, and chin with a mask. Thank you so much for helping to keep everyone, including your family, safe and healthy.
