UPDATED VISITOR RESTRICTIONS.
All visitors are required to enter through designated areas in the hospital.
All visitors must be free of any signs of illness and not have active Covid-19 or a pending Covid-19 test result.
All visitors must:
- Wash their hands or use alcohol sanitizer before entering and after leaving the facility, as well as during the visit.
- Maintain 6-feet social distancing while in the facility.
- Wear their own cloth face covering or mask.
- In some circumstances, wear masks and other protective equipment when provided by the facility.
Some units or areas of the facility may restrict all visitors, depending upon the prevalence of Covid-19 and space considerations – such areas might include the emergency department, the intensive care unit, and surgical areas. Additionally, the above restrictions may be minimally lessened by the unit supervisor on a case-by-case basis, if clinically appropriate and determined to be safe.
What to do if you're sick
Stay home except to get medical care
- Stay home: People who are mildly ill with COVID-19 are able to recover at home. Do not leave, except to get medical care. Do not visit public areas.
- Stay in touch with your doctor. Call before you get medical care. Be sure to get care if you feel worse or you think it is an emergency.
- Avoid public transportation: Avoid using public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis.
- As much as possible, you should stay in a specific “sick room” and away from other people in your home. Use a separate bathroom, if available.
- Limit contact with pets & animals: You should restrict contact with pets and other animals, just like you would around other people.
- Although there have not been reports of pets or other animals becoming sick with COVID-19, it is still recommended that people with the virus limit contact with animals until more information is known.
Call Ahead before visiting your doctor
Call ahead: If you have a medical appointment, call your doctor’s office or emergency department, and tell them you have or may have COVID-19. This will help the office protect themselves and other patients.
Monitor your symptoms
- Seek medical attention, but call first: Seek medical care right away if your illness is worsening (for example, if you have difficulty breathing).
- Call your doctor before going in: Before going to the doctor’s office or emergency room, call ahead and tell them your symptoms. They will tell you what to do.
