Hospital staff will pre-screen all visitors (using standard pre-screening questions). All visitors will be required to wear a mask and identification indicating they have been screened.

Individuals with respiratory symptoms or other risk factors for COVID-19, such as exposure, will be asked to refrain from visiting.

Visitors will be asked to refrain from visiting and to instead utilize alternative communication methods with patients who are under observation or test positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).

Thank you for your cooperation with these restrictions as we work together to end this pandemic.

Circumstances may allow for specific exceptions to any visitation restrictions described on this webpage. Those circumstances include religious visitation as well as a designated support person for a patient with a disability to provide assistance with communication or other necessary components of the patient's treatment. All persons entering under an exception remain subject to appropriate infection control protocols.
