Safety is a priority at Reid Health.
We recognize the positive impact a loved one's support can have on a patient's physical and emotional well-being and recovery; however we must prioritize the safety of our staff, patients, and their families. We appreciate your cooperation with the following requirements for visitation at any Reid Health facility.
Surgical masks are required. Cloth masks are not acceptable because of the highly contagious variants now in circulation. We appreciate your cooperation and are happy to provide you with a surgical mask during your visit to any Reid facility.
Limits on the number of visitors for patients at the hospital have been removed in many care locations. Exceptions include but are not limited to:
- Emergency Department: The pre-pandemic rule of no more than two visitors has been reimplemented. Space constraints and the needs of providing emergency care require a limitation on the number of visitors in that location.
- COVID-positive patients: Some visitation restrictions exist for those who have or are suspected to have COVID-19.
