Visitor Restrictions

February 14, 2022

 

Sidney Health Center knows that visitors are very important to a patient’s well-being and we appreciate the care and support visitors provide. That’s why we are excited to be able to open visitation at the Hospital and Clinic again due to the decreasing number of active COVID-19 cases in Richland County. All patients and visitors will continue to be screened and must wear a mask in the facility.

Currently, the visitation update only applies to the Clinic, Hospital and non-COVID-19 positive patients. For information regarding visitation at our long-term care facilities, call Extended Care or The Lodge for updated visitation guidelines.

As Sidney Health Center continues to monitor the number of active COVID-19 cases in the county, please note that visitations are subject to change and may be adjusted if the need arises.

Sidney Health Center Extended Care is following the CMS nursing home guidelines regarding county positivity rate. Click here for Extended Care Visitor Guidelines.

Visitor Expectations: 

Visitors continue to be screened at all of our entrances. This includes a temperature check and questions related to any COVID-like symptoms. All who enter are required to wear a mask per the CMS guidelines. Those who are properly screened will receive a sticker to wear during their visit. 

Please be aware that you are assuming a risk that you may become sick, or that you may spread sickness to your family members in the hospital or at home. By choosing to take that risk, you also have a responsibility to self-quarantine from the last known exposure to a COVID-19 positive patient, as well as monitor and report to your healthcare provider any new symptoms.
