Masking is still mandatory in our healthcare facilities for all patients, visitors and colleagues. Medical-grade masks will be provided to visitors if they do not have one.

Visitors should not enter our hospital if they:

  • are experiencing COVID-19, influenza, or other potentially infectious illness symptoms.
  • tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 10 days.

These guidelines are subject to change at any time to address the health needs of our communities. Each hospital may have additional, department-specific guidelines and varying visiting hours, so please refer to your local hospital’s website for specific details. By putting these guidelines in place, HSHS is exemplifying its commitment to the dignity and care of all.
