Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) has four different operations levels based on the risk of COVID-19 transmission in our community. The four levels address topics such as wearing a mask in our facilities, eating in our cafeterias, attending community meetings and more. From low to high risk, the levels are: green, yellow, orange and red. LVHN is currently operating in Level Yellow.
