The team will give you a sticker to wear following the screening to notify team members you have had a daily screening performed.

If these guidelines are unable to be followed, you will be asked to not continue visitation.
Mrs. Broadfoot stated, “As a team, the goal is to place our patients’ needs first.” She added, “By following the current guidelines we can allow our patients to have visitors and we recognize how important it is for them and their wellbeing to have their loved ones visit them.”
