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. Francis 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.
Visitors can enter the main lobby from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday and use the emergency department entrance when main entrance is closed.
Approved visitors/support persons must be over the age of 18.
Hospital leadership reminds the public that no one should visit persons in a health care facility if they have any of the following:
- A positive viral test within the last 10 days for SARS-COV-2,
- Symptoms of COVID-19, or
- Close contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
