We continue to have a symptom screening process in place where everyone who enters our hospitals, which means all staff, patients, visitors and vendors, attests that by entering the facility, they acknowledge and certify that they have self-screened and do not have any symptoms of COVID-19 including any of the following:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Headache
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

If a person has symptoms, they will not be able to enter our facilities. We are following additional guidelines, including testing and isolation, for any member of our staff exhibiting symptoms.

Once inside the facility

Everyone who enters one of our hospitals is expected to frequently perform hand hygiene; limit their interactions with others in the facility; restrict their visit to the patient’s room or other location designated by the facility. We ask that you bring your own mask if you are not a patient. You may be offered personal protective equipment (PPE) as supply allows.
