COVID-19 cases in our communities. Effective Tuesday, November 17, due to the rising rates of sustained community transmission of COVID-19 across central Pennsylvania, all WellSpan facilities will temporarily prohibit visitation, with certain clinical exceptions of support persons. See the updated visitation policy here.
WellSpan Health is stressing the need for renewed safety efforts in slowing the spread of COVID-19, as hospitalization rates increase at each of the health system’s acute care hospitals with some experiencing their highest patient counts of the pandemic.
If you are experiencing non-emergent health issues, please consider seeking care at a convenient WellSpan Urgent Care location. Also, patients are encouraged to use WellSpan Online Urgent Care to be seen quickly and safely, without the need to travel to a care location. Patients can visit www.WellSpan.org/OUC to get started.
To protect yourself, your family and our communities, remember simple, effective steps to stay safe and stop the spread of COVID-19 in our communities:
o Limit gathering sizes – even small gatherings carry big risk.
o Avoid eating or drinking in groups.
o Follow masking and social distancing guidelines.
o Wash your hands and use hand sanitizer.
