If a pregnant mother is COVID positive upon admittance, support person or visitor policies may be subject to change.

Our top priority is the health and safety of our patients, staff and our community. Our current guidelines and procedures noted below were established in consultation with our infection prevention colleagues to ensure the best and safest experience we can provide during this challenging time. Please understand that changes occur frequently as the impact of the virus on our community evolves. We will do our best to keep you as informed as possible of any changes that occur.
All patients and support persons/visitors will have their temperature checked and be asked screening questions upon entry to the hospital or OB office. Any support person who is symptomatic (fever, cough, etc.), or otherwise does not pass the screening questions, will not be permitted to enter and will be asked to leave the facility.
