Effective March 1, 2021, United Hospital District allows patients to have one consistent adult visitor per day. The same visitor will be allowed each day throughout the patient stay, as defined below.
All visitors must successfully complete the screening process of standard pre-screening questions and a temperature check. If a visitor screens positive for any symptoms or exposure to COVID-19, they will not be allowed to visit. Visitors allowed must stay in the patient’s room for the duration of the visit. Masks must be worn at all times, including in a patient’s room. Once the visitor leaves the patient room, they must leave the hospital.
