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.
