Visitor Policy

In This Section

Effective Wednesday, May 11, due to the continuing increase of positive COVID-19 cases across South Central Pennsylvania, WellSpan is implementing universal face mask wearing guidelines for patients and visitors in all patient care locations.

Face Mask Wearing

A medical PPE mask (such as a surgical mask, N95 mask, or KN95 mask) must be worn by everyone when entering any WellSpan care facility. If a person does not have an appropriate mask, one will be provided by the WellSpan care facility.

Higher-grade medical masks are now more readily available and provide a better alternative to cloth masks against more highly transmissible Omicron variants of COVID-19.

Patient Visitation

WellSpan is continuing to allow open visitation of patients, except for patients who are COVID-19 positive or suspected of being positive pending test results. 

COVID-19 positive or pending hospitalized patients may designate two support persons for visitation. Visitation by one designated support person at a time will be allowed. All approved visitors will be provided with appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) that will be worn during the duration of the patient visit.

People who are sick or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms (including fever, cough, and shortness of breath or difficulty breathing) should not visit patients.
