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.
- 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.
