Phelps Health Visitor Policy

Visitor Policy

On April 3, in an effort to continue to protect our patients, staff and communities from the spread of COVID-19, we suspended all visitors at all of our locations. However, we realize in some cases, limited exceptions are needed.

Beginning Saturday, May 9, the following visitor policy will go into effect:
  • Hospital Inpatient Units—One visitor
  • Emergency Department—One visitor
  • Transitional Care Facility (TCF)—No visitors
  • COVID-19 Units (e.g., patients who have been tested for COVID-19)—No visitors
  • Patients under the Age of 18—One parent or guardian
  • Obstetrics/Labor and Delivery—One visitor
  • Intellectually Disabled Patients—One visitor or caregiver
  • Prisoners—One law enforcement officer

If the above criteria is met, please note the following guidelines:
  • All visiting individuals must be adults (18 years or older).
  • All visiting individuals will be required to complete a health screening for wellness (including checking for fever and respiratory symptoms) upon entry at Phelps Health. 
  • Individuals showing signs or symptoms of illness will not be allowed to visit.
  • All visiting individuals will be required to wear a mask while at Phelps Health. If someone does not arrive wearing their own mask, one will be provided for them.
  • Visitors will only be allowed during the hours of 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM.

In all other Phelps Health patient care areas, no visitors will be allowed. Limited exceptions will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
