Visitor Restrictions

Updated May 10, 2022.

This page is reviewed on a regular basis and should be considered current.

To maintain the safety of patients, visitors and colleagues, special visitor restrictions remain in place across all Memorial Health sites of service.

Specific Guidelines: Visitors will be permitted as follows:

  • Self-screening for visitors is required prior to entry.
  • Two visitors per patient. One overnight visitor is allowed.
  • Visiting hours 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.
  • In the hospital setting, children younger than age 16 will not be permitted, unless they are the parent of a child receiving care.

Specific Guidelines for COVID-19 Patients

Visitors are limited to two per patient. Visits from individuals who are essential for the patient’s well-being are prioritized, and we continue to encourage “video visits” when possible.

  • Wear provided PPE. Visitors must wear a gown, gloves, N95 respirator and eye protection.
  • Follow hand hygiene and cough etiquette precautions.
  • Restrict their visit to the patient room. They will not be permitted in other areas of the hospital, including cafeterias and coffee shops.
  • Leave the room during aerosol-generating procedures.
  • Leave personal items at home. Visitors will not be permitted to bring items into the patient’s room.

General Guidelines:

  • Memorial-issued medical-grade mask required for all patients and visitors.
    • All patients and visitors are to be given a medical-grade mask upon entry to our facilities. This ensures proper protection for our patients and colleagues and is a requirement from the CDC.
  • Social distancing is encouraged in public spaces (e.g., waiting rooms, common areas).
  • Do not visit a patient:
    • If you are experiencing signs and symptoms of COVID-19 or feeling unwell;
    • If you or a member of your household tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 10 days; or
    • If you or a member of your household are awaiting COVID-19 test results due to symptoms or exposure.
  • All Memorial Health hospital locations: cafeterias, chapels, coffee shops and gift shops are open to the public.
