As Rochester Regional Health continues to optimize our readiness efforts surrounding COVID-19, we have important updates regarding visitor policies at our locations.
In collaboration with the Monroe County Health Department, all Rochester Regional Health facilities are implementing new visitor policies, including updated visitor restrictions and visitor screening requirements beginning Thursday, June 25 at 12pm.
For outpatient appointments, additional family members or other visitors are allowed for the following patients only:
Note: Visitors and guardians for patients above must remain in the room for the entirety of their visit. Once they leave the room, they must leave the premises. Visitors and guardians must be symptom-free (no coughing, no fever, no runny nose) and must not have knowingly been exposed to an individual with COVID-19 within the past 14 days.
No visitors will be permitted to visit our skilled nursing facilities until further notice.
As part of our ongoing efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and Governor Andrew Cuomo’s executive order for “universal masking”, Rochester Regional Health is requiring all patients, and those accompanying a patient, to wear a mask or face covering (such as a scarf or bandana) for any on-site appointments.
As always, we thank you for your patience, cooperation, and help in keeping our community safe—and for entrusting us with your care.
