These visitors should be those who are essential for the patient's physical or emotional well-being and care. Individual units are in the process of implementing these new guidelines and some may continue to have additional restrictions based on their specific needs. Visitors to COVID+ patients are not allowed, but exceptions may be granted for compassionate care, end of life and other situations at the discretion of the patient’s clinical teams.

Thank you for your understanding that safety needs to be our first priority.

What if you have an outpatient appointment scheduled?

  • If you are experiencing any respiratory symptoms or fever, do not come to the clinic, call ahead for instructions.
