Cuyuna Regional Medical Center is lifting its patient visitor restrictions that have been in place during the recent surge of COVID-19 illness and effective March 1 will allow limited visitors at all of its locations.
Two visitors will be allowed for COVID-19 negative hospitalized patients, those going to appointments and procedures, Surgery, and on the Birthing Unit. Pediatric patients may have two visitors at a time. End of life patients are allowed two visitors age 18 and older at the bedside at the same time, and visitors can switch throughout the day.
One adult visitor, who is symptom-free, will be allowed for COVID-19 positive hospitalized patients, those going to appointments and procedures, in the Emergency Department, Surgery, and on the Birthing Unit. The visitor must remain the same person without permission to substitute new visitors one at a time throughout the day, unless a compassionate exception has been granted by the medical staff.
Visitors must continue to wear a facemask that fully covers their nose and mouth and pass the COVID-19 health screening before entering the facility. CRMC strongly recommends that visitors be vaccinated against COVID-19 and practice physical distancing of at least six feet to the extent possible. Hand hygiene must be completed prior to entry and exiting any patient room.
Anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 cannot visit a patient until five days have passed since their positive test or exposure. Those who are sick or displaying flu-like symptoms of a fever, runny nose, cough, sore throat, vomiting, or diarrhea are not allowed to visit hospital patients or accompany clinic patients to appointments.
