No visitors allowed at Allina Health facilities

MINNEAPOLIS — As of Wednesday, Nov. 18, Allina Health visitor status is “red, no visitors, limited exceptions,” said an Allina Health press release.

The restrictions are motivated by safety concerns related to COVID-19 and may change, the press release said.

There are the limited exceptions for visitors. You can find them on our Visitor Guidelines web page at https://www.allinahealth.org/coronavirus-covid-19/getting-care-at-allina-health/visitor-guidelines.

If you qualify for a visitor exception, these guidelines must be followed:

• Visitors will be screened for symptoms of COVID-19 and must pass the screening to visit a patient. Visitors who leave the building must show their screening sticker or be re-screened to re-enter.

• Visitors must wear a mask, visitor badge and screening sticker at all times during the visit.

• Visitors must have good hand hygiene and practice physical distancing during the visit. Hand sanitizer is located at all building entrances and on patient care units.

• If the waiting room is full, visitors may be asked to wait outside the building.

• Visitors should visit only the patient’s room and avoid other areas. Visitors may be asked to step out of the room during an exam or treatment.

• Visitors under the age of 18 will not be allowed, unless a compassionate exception has been granted. Compassionate care exceptions may be considered.
