Due to a recent spike in COVID-19 cases in our hospitals and the broader community, Asante will retain current visitor restrictions until further notice.
- Screening at entrances.
- No visitors under age 18.
- Only one visitor or support person per patient, per day.
- Hospital cafeterias remain closed to visitors.
The system had planned to relax restrictions effective July 22 in all Asante facilities. However, as COVID patient volumes have steadily risen — nearly tripling in the past few weeks — Asante Infection Prevention is urging caution.
Asante hospitals currently have more than 30 COVID-confirmed patients compared with fewer than 10 last month at this time.
We do not come by these decisions lightly. The visitor team will this week to discuss a timeline for continuing these restrictions along with other measures to ensure the safety and well-being of our patients and staff.
