- Visitors allowed in our inpatient units must be healthy, wear a mask for their entire visit, practice proper hand hygiene with soap and water or hand sanitizer and stay in the patient's room.
- Some patient units, clinics, diagnostic service areas and treatment areas may have additional restrictions in place to best protect our patients and community.
