As Covenant Health phases in elective services beginning April 27, protecting the health and safety of our patients, visitors, and staff is more important now than ever. We have implemented many protocols during the COVID-19 crisis we will continue to follow, including:
We continue to limit visitors at Covenant Health hospitals and nursing homes. Please visit our current visitation policy to learn how we’re protecting the health and safety of our patients and staff.
Limited Access and Screening
We have limited access into our hospitals to allow everyone entering our facilities to be screened for fever, cough and shortness of breath.
Masks and Donations
All patients, visitors, vendors and staff are required to wear masks while at our facilities. To conserve masks for our staff, we encourage you to bring a mask from home.
We are accepting mask donations from the community and are so grateful for everyone who has donated. Learn how you can help provide masks for our patients and visitors.
We will continue our social distancing practices. To support this effort, some waiting areas have been reconfigured to meet personal spacing requirements. Also, we may ask you to wait in your car prior to your outpatient testing appointment and notify you on your cell phone when it is your turn.
Above and our normal stringent cleaning policies, we have implemented enhanced cleaning protocols, especially in high-contact surface areas such as lobbies and patient areas.
If you are experiencing severe COVID-19 symptoms and need to come to the emergency department, please call ahead so we can prepare for your arrival.
- If you are experiencing symptoms of a life-threatening condition such as a heart attack or stroke, the hospital emergency department is still the safest place to be, so don’t delay your care. Our staff is taking all essential precautions to ensure your safety from COVID-19.
