"All support persons and visitors presenting to CHI St. Alexius Health will be screened and required to wear a mask when coming to our clinics or hospital.

If a visitor or support person has tested positive for COVID-19 and is currently following state health department quarantine guidelines they cannot visit in person or provide face-to-face support. A virtual visit is encouraged. CHI St. Alexius Health will continue to monitor risks and adjust visitation limitations and restrictions as conditions allow."

Each hospital patient is allowed one support person or visitor every day from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m., with certain exceptions.

Patients presenting to the clinic, emergency department and outpatient areas, including the cancer center, are allowed one support person for appointments.
