On Monday, Aug. 30, new visitation guidelines went into effect at most Deaconess facilities.
According to Deaconess, most inpatients will now be limited to two designated visitors per day, with some exceptions under special circumstances.
Additionally, Deaconess' Emergency Department patients will be limited to one visitor, and its pediatric patients may have two.
Finally, Deaconess says no visitors under the age of 18 are permitted except for end-of-life situations.
Masks will continue to be required for all patients, visitors, and staff, with social distancing also required in all areas.
