We ask that all visitors that are ill to refrain from visiting patients to help stop the spread of illnesses. Visitors will be screened before being allowed entrance into the facility to ensure patient and staff safety. Visitors screening positive will not be allowed to visit and are encouraged to seek treatment if they are experiencing severe symptoms, such as high fever or shortness of breath. Screening is still required whether or not you have been vaccinated.

The following screening questions will be asked upon entering:

  1. Do you have a fever OR cough OR shortness of breath OR difficulty breathing?
  2. Have you had COVID or been exposed to COVID in the last 14 days?

We appreciate your cooperation.
