Ochiltree General Hospital Updates COVID-19 Visitation Policy
March 30, 2021 – Due to the decline of COVID-19 positive cases in our community, Ochiltree General Hospital will once again be changing protocols to protect our patients while also allowing visitation.
Effective Thursday, March 25, 2021, Ochiltree General Hospital began allowing patients to have visitors between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m.
Visitors will need to meet the following requirements:
1. Any individual with symptoms or who has been advised to self-quarantine because of
exposure should be prohibited from visiting.
2. ALL visitors are required to wear a mask while in the facility.
3. Full PPE must be worn when visiting COVID-19 positive patients.
A. One visitor at a time in COVID-19 positive rooms, limited to one hour.
4. Visitors assume the liability of entering the facility where SARS-CoV-2 and other
communicable diseases are prevalent at this time.
5. No visitors under the age of 12 are permitted to visit.
Ochiltree General Hospital may revisit this policy at any time due to prevalence of COVID in the community or in our facility, staffing levels and PPE supplies. As always, we will remain diligent in the care, transmission and prevention of COVID-19.
