Visitation restrictions across Skagit Regional Health

Jun 24, 2020, 06:09 AM
Skagit Regional Health has implemented a new visitation policy across the system.

 

Skagit Regional Health provides outstanding care to the people of our communities. As we move through the ever-changing COVID-19 pandemic, we are taking all appropriate steps to ensure the safety of our patients, families, staff and providers including screening, masking and sanitizing.

We understand the important role that loved ones play in patients’ lives. To continue to protect our patients and employees during the outbreak of COVID-19, we have adjusted the number of visitors who may be with patients at Skagit Valley Hospital and Cascade Valley Hospital and in our clinic system.

All patients and visitors are required to wear a mask when coming to one of our facilities.

You will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms upon entry at our acute care hospitals and at the reception area of our clinics. Anyone with symptoms, including fever, new onset cough, shortness of breath or diarrhea, will not be allowed access to the hospitals and clinics and will be directed to the correct resource for care, including our Urgent Care facilities at Smokey Point or Riverbend.

Here are details of our current practices (effective June 24, 2020).
