As the number of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations decrease in Central Minnesota, CentraCare and Carris Health have updated the visitor policy at all facilities.
Starting Monday, June 29, Carris Health – Redwood hospital will allow one healthy adult visitor for a patient’s entire length of stay at the hospital. Visitor hours will occur between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. daily for hospital settings.
For pediatric inpatient, two parents/legal guardians will be permitted. For critically unstable and end-of-life patients, two adult visitors may visit per day. Clergy also will be allowed to visit hospital patients.
Hospital outpatient areas and Carris Health – Redwood clinic will allow one adult visitor at a time per patient.
Visitors entering Carris Health facilities must use designated entrances and will be screened for COVID-19. Staff asks you do not visit or accompany a patient if you have any symptoms of illness or have been exposed to someone who is ill. Visitors will not be admitted if they are symptomatic.
Visitors are required to wear a mask at all times while in Carris Health – Redwood facilities. You are encouraged to bring your own mask, but staff will provide one if necessary.
The visitor policy for CentraCare and Carris Health hospitals, clinics and long-term care facilities is reassessed on a daily basis and it is subject to change at any time. Carris Health – Redwood asks you to note that Redwood-area long term care facilities may have different guidelines, so please check with them before visiting.
