Limited visitor restrictions still apply and anyone entering the hospital will be required to wear a mask, per the universal UnityPoint Health masking policy. Reminder, only one visitor per patient will be allowed between the hours of 6 a.m. - 6 p.m., in most instances.
This does not include the behavioral health units, where restrictions remain. Exceptions include end of life care, which may have two visitors and will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
Visitors must follow screening procedures and may not have any respiratory symptoms or known exposure to COVID-19 in the last 14 days. Visitors will not be permitted if the patient admitted has a positive or pending COVID-19 test.
Hospital visitors will be required to wear a mask. At this time, no visitors under the age of 18 are allowed.
Visitors must stay in the patient's room the entire duration of their visit. Once the visitor leaves the patient room, they must exit the hospital.
- Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) patients may have one birth parent plus one significant other who must remain in the room for the duration of the visit.
- Patients who are at the end-of-life may have two visitors.
