FURTHER RESTRICTIONS ON VISITATION GUIDELINES – 3.18.20

UPDATED MARCH 18, 2020

Due to confirmed cases of COVID 19 regionally, and out of an abundance of caution and care for our community, Glens Falls Hospital will suspend ALL routine visitation to our patients effective immediately.

No visitors will be allowed unless they meet the exceptions listed below, however no visitors under age 16 will be allowed. There are exceptions for certain patients that include:

  • Delivering mothers will be allowed one visitor for the duration of their stay – this can be a spouse/significant other OR another support person of the family’s choosing
  • Special Care Nursery patients may have one birth parent plus one significant other who must remain in the room for the duration of the visit
  • Compassionate exceptions may be made

Guests that meet an exception will be allowed inside the hospital, but will be restricted to the patient’s room. Once a guest leaves a patient’s room; they must leave the hospital.

No guest will be allowed entry to visit a patient who has a pending or positive COVID-19 test.

Thank you for understanding.
