Visitation Policy (updated July 30, 2020)

We understand healthcare is stressful and we are doing our very best to safely allow visitors and caregivers in our facilities. However, to continue this, we need our community’s cooperation with our visitation guidelines. During this pandemic, limiting the number of visitors in our facilities is important to the health and safety of our patients and team members. Our visitation policy is subject to change at any time in response to the ever-evolving pandemic. In brief, our visitation policy requires:

  • ALL patients, visitors and caregivers in our facilities must wear a mask or face covering, regardless of the location where the patient is being seen or treated.
  • If a patient has an appointment with a provider and feels they cannot wear a mask a virtual visit should be scheduled.
  • If a visitor has an underlying health condition and they feel they cannot wear a mask, they may not accompany the patient in the building. For safety, ALL visitors must wear a mask.
  • Masks/face covers are not optional and must be in place upon entering the building and before the viral screen (temperature check/health/travel questions) is completed.
  • Patients and visitors are permitted to wear their own cloth mask or face covering.
  • If you do not have a face mask, we will provide one.
  • No one under the age of 18 is permitted in our facilities unless they are the patient

Universal Masking

Wearing a mask or face covering helps reduce the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19 by containing droplets that are produced with talking, laughing, sneezing, coughing, or even breathing. Masks/face coverings are not optional in the medical setting. They are required by law.

Recovering from COVID-19 at Home

Most people who get COVID-19 will be able to recover at home. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has provided the guidelines for those who are recovering at home and those who are caring for them. View the PDF of the guidelines:
