COVID VISITOR GUIDELINES
Updated July 8, 2022
The health and safety of our patients, families, and staff are our top priority. We continue to evaluate local, state and federal COVID-19 requirements and recommendations to allow more people to safely visit their loved one while receiving care. The hospital reserves the right to deny general visitation and overnight stays to ensure the health and safety of all patients, visitors, and staff.
For the safety of our patients, families, and staff, visitors must:
- Only 2 visitors allowed per room at a time
- Minors under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult unless otherwise approved by a hospital representative
- No visitors are allowed for COVID patients
COVID-19 Visitor Vaccination Guidelines
All approved visitors must:
- Check-in at the main hospital front desk for screening
- Complete the main hospital visitor log, including COVID-19 symptom attestation
- Follow infection control practices such as:
- Wearing a medical mask at all times
- Maintaining 6 feet physical distances from others in all areas
- Stay in the patient’s room while on the unit.
- Visitors are not permitted to eat in the patient’s room or lobby because this would require unmasking.
All approved visitors must show proof of one of the following:
- COVID-19 vaccination, including proof of a booster shot
- Negative COVID-19 PCR or antigen test within the last 48 hours
Any visitors who are unwilling or unable to follow these guidelines will be asked to leave the premises. Restrictions do not apply to end-of-life care.
Visitation Hours: 8 a.m.–8 p.m.
To clarify the visiting guidelines, call (323) 462-2271 and ask to speak to the social work department.
