Today’s Health Care Hub includes information about the status of COVID-19, INFLUENZA and RSV across the state and nationally.

  • YORK HOSPITAL INPATIENT CENSUS, 1/30/2023:  6 inpatients 
  • COVID TREATMENT:  COVID Treatment Options at York Hospital are outlined here.
  • VISITOR POLICY: Our Visitor Policy remains unchanged (one visitor at a time with some exceptions)
  • MASKING POLICY: Masking continues to be required at all health care facilities. Thank you for understanding that asking everyone—staff, patients and visitors—to wear a mask while at any York Hospital location is an important safeguard for our vulnerable patient population as well as for visitors and staff, due to elevated transmission rates of the virus in the community. Please note: Beginning February 1, 2023, even though masking continues to be required, visitors to any York Hospital facility will no longer be required to replace their own personal mask with a hospital mask, as long as their mask (including cloth masks) is not visibly soiled, torn or damaged. Find CDC masking guidelines here. 



  • INFLUENZA  numbers across the country have begun to trend lower. However, awareness of all respiratory infections should remain high.
  • State of Maine Flu data is now being reported on the Maine CDC Influenza 2022-2023 page.
  • MASKING: Masking is recommended for anyone experiencing respiratory symptoms.



  • YH POSITIVITY RATE: For the week of 01/13/23 to 12/29/22, no testing was performed.
