Updated Visitor Guidelines (Effective June 8, 2021):

  • Patients are allowed two visitors at a time between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. This includes inpatient, outpatient and clinic appointments. However, Emergency Room will continue to allow only one support person at a time but may exchange up to two different support persons during their stay.
  • Visitors will be screened at least once a day upon entry and masks must be worn by visitors at all times. 
  • Children under the age of 18 may now visit.
  • Visitors are free to move about the campus, utilizing the café, gift shop and all waiting areas.
  • Patients who are end-of-life will have visitors at the discretion of patient's health care team.

All visitors and support persons must be free of illness (e.g. fever, sore throat, cough, shortness of breath, diarrhea or vomiting.); as well as have had no contact with someone who may have COVID-19 in the past 14 days.
