Providence Oregon updated visitor policy

As we continue to monitor the prevalence of COVID in our community, we are now able to allow two visitors at a time for most patients. The new policy takes effect Friday, Aug. 26.

How it works

Two visitors at a time are allowed in adult inpatient units, mother/baby units and hospital-based outpatient and procedural areas.

Special rules apply for people with disabilities or COVID-19, and for those in emergency departments or behavioral health inpatient units.

To prevent the spread of disease, everyone must wear a mask in the hospital and maintain a safe physical distance of 6 feet.

We understand that limiting visitors is difficult for people with sick family and friends in the hospital. Thank you for understanding, as we do our best to balance your loved one’s need for connection with the need to keep everyone safe.
