When You Visit in the Hospital: Guidelines to Follow

  • A hospital-issued mask (we will provide) must be worn at all times. Wear your mask correctly: nose and mouth must be covered.
  • Wash your hands often: Wash with soap for at least 20 seconds and use sanitizer – ask for some if none is available to you.
  • Individuals who are sick or suspected of having COVID may not visit. You will be screened for symptoms on arrival to the hospital, and your temperature will be checked.
  • After screening, you will receive a visitor pass – which is only a one-day pass.
  • Social distance: stay 6 feet apart from other people.
  • Stay in your patient’s room: no walking in the halls unless necessary. If you smoke, please bring nicotine replacement.
  • When you leave the hospital, help everyone stay safe: remain masked, wash your hands after visiting, and maintain social distancing.
