Visitation guidelines at St. John’s Health eased with Teton County in Yellow
St. John’s Health is pleased to lift some of the temporary visitor restrictions put in place during the covid pandemic to reduce transmission and keep patients and staff safe. “We are easing our visitor restrictions as soon as it is possible to do so safely. We recognize that patients and residents can benefit greatly from the comfort and support of having a loved one nearby,” said communications officer Karen Connelly.
With the announcement that Teton County has moved into the Yellow (Low) Risk Level, in most cases patients may have one visitor per day. Both guardians are permitted to visit if the patient is a child.
The visitor guidelines require the following:
- Visitors must be age 18 or over and in good health
- Proper masks are required at all times; no buffs or bandanas
- Visitor hours apply
- Covid patients may not have visitors
- Additional restrictions apply in Living Center and Cancer Care
Exceptions and additional rules may apply, and the temporary visitor restrictions are subject to change. Current guidelines may be found at https://www.stjohns.health/coronavirus-info/
