Visitor Guidelines

Mask / Face Covering Guidelines

As we move forward to transition into a new phase of delivering safe care alongside COVID-19, masking guidelines are aligned with local community transmission levels.

Levels may be Low/Moderate, Substantial or High.

Current COVID-19 community transmission level: SUBSTANTIAL

If you have an appointment or are visiting a patient at a UnityPoint Health location, please follow these guidelines.

  • Masking is required at all UnityPoint Health facilities for patients, visitors and team members.
  • All visitors/support people must be in good health and will be screened prior to entrance into the hospital for recent exposure to COVID-19 and symptoms related to COVID-19.
    • Anyone who has recently been exposed, is symptomatic or has tested positive for COVID-19 should not visit until they have met the CDC's guidance for discontinuation of isolation
    • Visitors who are not in good health but MUST be present in the facility must wear a mask at all times

Please note: If/when community levels change, we will appropriately amend the masking requirement.

Clinic Visitor Restrictions

In our clinics, we're restricting visitors to one support person for adult appointments and two support people (with no siblings) for pediatric appointments. All visitors/support people must be in good health (no fever, running nose or cough during the last seven days) and must be age 16 or older (including siblings).

Virtual Clinic Visits

When appropriate, more clinic visits are being completed over the phone to limit face-to-face interaction and promote physical distancing. Situations best-suited for a telephone visit include follow-up on chronic medical conditions, medication management or other appointments for established patients that don't rely on a physical examination from a provider.

Virtual Waiting Rooms

UnityPoint Health has partnered with WELL Health, Inc. to create a virtual waiting room. This has been implemented in the Waterloo region allows patients to notify the healthcare facility when they arrive by responding to an automated appointment reminder. The patient will then receive text instructions on registration and when and how to safely enter the building.

Vendor Restrictions

As of March 10, 2020, UnityPoint Health is restricting in-person, vendor visits for sales and marketing calls, routine business reviews, and any other non-critical meetings. Vendor visits required for direct patient care or business critical functions (ex: equipment repair) are permissible with the appropriate screening and precautions. This change is to reduce risk of exposure to patients, team members and vendors during the global outbreak of COVID-19.

We will communicate accordingly when in-person vendor visits are reinstated. Thank you for your cooperation.
