A sign saying no masks are required for entry has been removed from the front door of a Tiffin medical clinic.
That’s according to KCRG-TV, which says the sign had previously greeted patients entering the Tiffin Medical Clinic. The sign read, “We do not require face masks in this clinic. It is a personal choice.” It then instructed those who preferred their staff wear masks during their appointment to call the clinic to make arrangements.
Officials with Johnson County Public Health told KCRG they contacted the clinic, believing reports they’d received about the sign were a misunderstanding. But they soon learned that was not the case.
The clinic’s policy is a violation of the county’s mask mandate, but county officials say they are not sure it can actually be enforced, and they are considering their options.
The Iowa Board of Medicine says it had yet to receive a formal complaint as of Monday.
Clinic officials had yet to respond to KCRG’s request for comment as of Monday night.
