How Does COVID-19 Affect Maternity Visitation?

The safety and well-being of our patients, visitors and staff is our number one priority. At this time, we are currently allowing 1 birth partner to accompany each patient in Labor and Delivery and in Family Centered Care (post partum).

In addition:

  • Should the patient test positive for COVID-19 upon admission, the birth partner will not be permitted to leave the labor or post partum room for any reason, including to purchase food. Instead, a meal will be delivered to the birth partner.
  • The birth partner must not have any signs of COVID-19. His/Her temperature will be monitored every 12 hours for the duration of the hospitalization.
