- Frequently disinfecting welcome areas.
- Continuing to require staff, patients, and visitors to wear masks.

- Screening both patients and staff as needed.
As of this posting, no visitors are allowed. However, should you need an exception in the situation of a pediatric, elderly, or emergency surgery patient, we will allow ONE visitor. Please contact us for additional questions.
