Latest update on COVID-19 from Community Chief Physician Executive Dr. Ram Yeleti

Update to visitor restrictions​

No visitors will be allowed to enter any Community site unless they are accompanying a minor patient or a patient who needs assistance. In those instances, the visitor may accompany the patient only as far as the door to the facility unless a medical professional believes the patient needs the guest’s assistance inside the facility. The visitor can then assist the patient to the location, but cannot stay with the patient and must leave the facility.

Exceptions will be considered in OB/delivery and end of life situations where a patient may receive one visitor per room.

For the safety of patients and caregivers, no packages, gifts, food, etc. will be allowed into our facilities.
