Visitor Restriction

Starting today, March 16, CDP Health Care system will be restricting visitors due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

We appreciate the community’s support and understanding as we take steps to protect patients, staff, and the spread of this virus. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, CDP Health Care System has made the difficult decision to restrict visitors at our hospital.

No visitors will be allowed, except for:

  • Inpatients: Visitors only will be allowed based on palliative-care needs. Family members are advised to call the hospital/unit before coming.
  • Emergency department: One visitor for pediatric, vulnerable adult, trauma or other patient requiring communication to a health care team on their behalf.
  • Pediatric patients: One adult visitor will be allowed per patient.
  • Labor and delivery patients: One adult visitor will be allowed per patient.

All other visitors will be asked to leave the hospital, and no visitors who are ill will be allowed. CDP Health Care System does encourage family and friends to use alternative methods of communication with patients, such as phone calls, text message, FaceTime, Skype or other digital channels.

The policy will go into effect Monday and will continue until further notice.

CDP Health Care System appreciates the understanding of everyone affected.
