What is Wilmot's Current Visitor Policy?

Aug. 24, 2021
Visitation policy at Wilmot as of March 2, 2022

We understand how important loved ones are when it comes to cancer. However, people with cancer are among the most vulnerable when it comes to COVID-19. Knowing this, it is our responsibility to protect our patients and our employees by limiting visitation. 

If you are coming to an appointment: 

  • Patients coming in for a clinic appointment may have one visitor (age 18 or older), when waiting room space allows. If waiting area space is too full, visitors may be asked to wait in their car until the visit begins. 
  • Visitors are currently not permitted in the infusion center or in radiation therapy waiting area because of the very limited space available in these locations.

All visitors must go through a screening station before entering and must wear a medical mask while in the hospital; cloth masks are not permitted. If you do not have a medical mask, one will be provided to you. Wear your mask correctly; nose and mouth must be covered. 

Please ask a staff member if you have questions. 

If you are admitted to the hospital and staying overnight

  • Hospitalized patients may identify two visitors throughout the hospital stay; only one visitor is permitted per day. Please alternate days. 
  • All visitors must be at least 18 years old. Visitors are required to wear a medical mask at all times in the hospital, including in patients' rooms. Cloth masks are not permitted. If you do not have a medical mask, one will be provided to you. 
  • Visiting hours are anytime between 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. 

‚ÄčThere are limited exceptions, such as for patients with developmental disabilities or cognitive impairment, pediatric patients, and end-of-life care. Please speak with your care team if you have questions.
