Visiting Guidelines

Effective Nov. 5, 2021

For patient’s safety and to help prevent the spread of COVID, the following guidelines are being followed:

  • All visitors will be screened for a history of COVID and flu-like symptoms, such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath, and will not be permitted if symptomatic.
  • Only visitors who are fully vaccinated or have a negative COVID test within 72 hours will be allowed to enter the facility.
  • All visitors, regardless of vaccination status or test result, must follow proper infection prevention practices:
    • Wear a well-fitting face mask (a surgical mask or double masking is recommended) upon entry and at all times within the facility
    • Wear any other personal protective equipment (PPE) while in the patient's or resident's room that our staff deems appropriate to the situation
    • Physically distance from facility personnel and other patients/residents/visitors that are not part of your group at all times while in the facility
    • Two visitors maximum age 16 or older are allowed to visit the patient at the same time for 15 minutes during visitation hours: 3:30-4:30 p.m. and 7:30-8:30 p.m. on weekdays, and 2-4 p.m. on weekends
  • To ensure the patient's safety and practice physical distancing, a staff member will escort the visitor to the designated visitation area (visitors cannot roam the hallways)
  • All communication with hospital staff should be done by phone from outside the hospital
  • Visitors are only allowed in the designated area (dining room) during visitation hours referenced above
  • Before entering the hospital, all visitors must sign in with name, date, contact information, and whom they wish to visit; our hospital will maintain the sign-in log
