Visitor Guidelines

Due to the reduction in the number of positive tests and hospitalizations for COVID-19, we will no longer monitor temperatures or ask those entering our facilities if they have COVID-19 symptoms or if they have been exposed.
We will continue these important safety measures:
• Requiring masks for all caregivers, visitors, and outpatients as well as for patients in the Emergency Department. We will also encourage inpatients to wear a mask. Providing masks and hand sanitizer at entrances.
• Maintaining social distancing.
• Asking patients about COVID-19 symptoms and exposure when scheduling appointments. Patients with COVID-19 whose symptoms began fewer than 10 days prior to their appointment can be instructed to take additional precautions to prevent exposure to other patients and caregivers.
• Helping patients who are not feeling well to find spaces distanced from others in which they can wait for their appointment.
• Wearing an N95 respirator, eye protection, gown and gloves when providing care to patients with COVID-19 whose symptoms began fewer than 10 days prior to their appointment.
• Limiting visitation. See current guidelines below.
Visitors who have tested positive for COVID-19 or been exposed to someone with COVID-19 fewer than 10 days before visiting will be discouraged from entering our facilities. We will also discourage visitors who have COVID-19 symptoms (including fever, chills, cough, and shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, vomiting, and diarrhea, new loss of taste or smell, and muscle or body aches).
