Masks no longer required at Tamarac, the Spa; still required in Spectrum Health clinical areas

Fremont, Mich., May 12, 2022 – Tamarac and The Skincare and Spa will no longer require members, customers and guests to wear masks. Individuals without masks are asked to enter Tamarac and the spa only through the west entrance of the building, where the Tamarac Bridge is located.

Masks are still required in all areas where clinical and health care services are provided: outpatient rehab, diabetes education and community health programs. Entrance to these clinical areas is through the east entrance. Masks must be worn in the lobby and hallways of these clinical areas to comply with federal guidelines. These areas are clearly marked and separated.

Individuals who feel sick are asked not to enter the building, located at 1401 W. Main St., Fremont.

Tamarac manager Amanda Irwin asked individuals coming into the building to please be mindful and respectful of these clinical spaces and make sure to mask before entering them.

Irwin said: “Spectrum Health has conducted a thorough review of our facility at Tamarac to protect health and safety and minimize risks in a mask-free environment, including observing recommended guidelines for distancing, frequent cleanings and optimum high-volume air flow. At the same time, Spectrum Health continues to require masks in clinical settings to comply with federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services guidelines.”
