Sidney Health Center Service Updates

Face Mask Required at Sidney Health Center

With Governor Bullock’s announcement to reopen Montana in phases, Sidney Health Center is beginning to look at reopening service lines. As we reopen services, it will mean an increase of community members at our facilities. Sidney Health Center is adhering to strict CDC guidelines for the health and safety of patients and staff. We are asking that all who come to Sidney Health Center wear a homemade mask to help us preserve our protective equipment. Failure to wear a mask could result in delayed services. Thank you for your cooperation and for keeping our community healthy.
