COVID-19 positive patients
Two visitors per patient per day will be allowed for COVID positive patients. Visitors of COVID positive patients must check in with nursing staff before entering a room to be provided with the mandatory personal protective equipment (PPE) for their safety. As the pandemic has improved, the adequate supply of PPE has allowed St. Elizabeth’s to provide this protection to families and visitors. It is also recommended that visitors of COVID positive patients leave personal belongings at home, as purses and bags will not be allowed in the patient’s room.
Approved support persons must be over the age of 18 unless they are parents of a child receiving care and will continue to be screened upon entering the facility for COVID-19 symptoms and exposure. NO VISITORS ALLOWED for patient under investigation for possible COVID-19 diagnosis and those confirmed positive for COVID-19.
Family members and loved ones should provide nursing staff with their contact information and may call (618) 234-2120 to check on their loved ones.
