Visitation Restrictions and Masking Guidelines

Visitors are welcome at all of our locations. 

As we respond to the unique needs of each community related to COVID-19, we continue to monitor the need for visitor restrictions and limitations for our hospitals, clinics and other healthcare facilities. 

Current Masking Guidelines

Masking for patients and visitors is encouraged but is not required when in registration areas, waiting rooms or during outpatient procedures. Visitors to inpatient hospital units will continue to be expected to mask.

Immunocompromised patients or patients with respiratory symptoms are encouraged to wear masks throughout the hospital. N-95 masks will be available for immunocompromised patients who desire them at check-in.

Visitors will be advised to not visit if they are experiencing symptoms of Covid-19.
