At Valleywise Health, we believe visitors can be an important element of healing for our patients. With the number of COVID-19 cases going down in our community, we will begin a safe, gradual lift of visitor restrictions in certain areas.
To further support a safe environment, everyone entering a Valleywise Health facility will be required wear an acceptable style of face masks, surgical face mask or a cloth face mask, at all times and will be screened for symptoms of respiratory illness.
We encourage patients to also stay in contact with loved ones through phone and/or video chats during this time.
Visitation within the Medical Center is predicated on community COVID-19 positivity test rate. At a percent positivity rate greater than 10% is considered HIGH RISK of transmission. Visitation restriction lifts will be considered when community spread is below 10% for 14 consecutive days.
