Please park accordingly as entrance points to facilities may be limited.
To better control the flow of traffic into our hospitals (and clinics and personal care homes where they are attached to a hospital), we are implementing single point of access for the public and we will have people screening at entrances to ensure anyone entering is not ill or meeting any of the criteria for exposure to COVID-19. This means that you will be required to answer some questions upon arrival at any of our hospitals.
We have adopted a single point of access to most health care facilities. Please park accordingly.

An essential care partner is defined as those providing physical, psychological, and emotional support, as deemed important by the patient.
This can include:
- support in decision making, care coordination and continuity of care
- family members, close friends or other caregivers identified by the patient or substitute decision maker to provide support
- cultural and spiritual support
Vaccination status of essential care partners or patient is not a consideration.
A visitor is defined as someone whose time with the patient is discretionary and short-term/temporary.
This can include:

- individuals who are not involved in the care of the patient
You can expect to be screened if you are a:
- non-RHA courier

Do your part: Preventing the spread of COVID-19 is everyone’s responsibility
You will be asked questions about your symptoms, exposure, and travel history related to COVID-19 prior to being granted entry.
Keep your distance
Continue to stay 6 feet away from others, even if you’re wearing a mask and are fully vaccinated.
Wear a mask
A medical mask is required, even if you have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19. A mask will be provided prior to entry.
Exceptions for medical reasons will be considered with a note from your health care provider. Exemption cards from the internet are not accepted.
Keep your mask on for the entire duration of your visit, unless instructed otherwise by our staff to receive care.
Masks can only be removed during outdoor visits.
Wash your hands
Use the hand sanitizer stations available everywhere on our campus to clean your hands.
Germs are everywhere and most are spread by hand contact or coughing and sneezing. Whether at home or in the hospital, proper hand hygiene is one of the single most important ways to stop the spread of infection. Protect yourself and others by covering your cough or sneeze with the bend of your arm or a paper tissue.
