  2. If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 (or another contagious respiratory illness, such as influenza or RSV), within the last 10 days.
  3. If you have had close contact with someone with COVID-19 infection (or another contagious respiratory illness) in the last 10 days and cannot wear a mask – even if you are asymptomatic.

When visiting our facility, all visitors are expected to adhere to the following safety recommendations:

  • Wear an appropriate face mask at all times when in the presence of patients. We will offer you a new mask for source control or may ask you to replace your own mask with a hospital-supplied mask.
  • Clean your hands before and after your visit.
  • Maintain physical distance.

Thank you for your cooperation and your efforts to help keep our patients, staff and communities safe.
