We believe that visits from family members and friends help healing happen. We welcome patient visitation at AdventHealth facilities, and we’ve made updates to our visitor policy to ensure everyone’s safety while encouraging healing
Screening, Infection Prevention and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Proof of COVID-19 vaccination is not required to visit us. Our facilities will screen all visitors for COVID-19 symptoms, infection or exposure before entry. This screening may include temperature checks, completion of attestation forms and/or answering a series of questions.
Any visitors who do not pass this screening will be offered an opportunity to visit the patient or resident virtually where available.
All visitors must wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), which at a minimum is a face mask (additional PPE may be required as clinically indicated). All visitors and children over age 2 will be provided a face mask for their use. Visitor PPE requirements will be consistent with facility staff members’ PPE requirements, except for fit testing of N95 masks.
Our facilities will supply tissues, waste receptacles, alcohol-based hand sanitizer and face masks at all entry points at both acute care and ambulatory locations, and we will have signage on hand hygiene, respiratory hygiene and cough etiquette.
