Asante hospitals relax their visitor policy (slightly)

Patients are now allowed one visitor or support person and visitors may again use the cafeterias.

Share:

With the COVID-19 surge receding, hospitals are once again allowing limited visitations. As of Nov. 15, one visitor or support person at a time can enter an inpatient or outpatient room. Visitors also may again use the cafeterias, which have been off-limits to all but employees, providers and contractors for more than a year. ARRMC’s cafeteria is open to all, and the others are working through plans for reopening.

No visitors are allowed in COVID-19 hot zones and only legal representatives are permitted in the Behavioral Health Unit. Up to two visitors are still allowed in pediatrics/NICU, labor and delivery, and maternal child units as well as for patients at the end of life.

Other restrictions remain:

  • No visitors under age 18 except for patients at the end of life on a case-by-case basis.
  • All visitors and support people must go through screening.
  • All who enter an Asante facility must wear masks.

Asante is not requiring visitors to provide proof of vaccination, although leaders continue to evaluate this matter.
