Lake Huron Medical Center has updated its visitation policy for non-COVID-19 patients. Effective Wednesday, June 10, 2020, Lake Huron Medical Center will permit limited visitations to non-COVID-19 patients as following:

1.) All visitors will be screened at the entrance for symptoms of COVID-19. Visitors with a respiratory infection, including but not limited to fever, cough, or shortness of breath, will not be permitted to enter the facility.

2.) No visitors are allowed for patients in any form of isolation.

3.) All visitors are required to wear a mask or other cloth face covering for the duration of their visit, non-compliant visitors will be asked to leave the facility.

4.) All visitations are allowed through the main lobby entrance between 1:00 pm and 6:00 pm Monday-Friday and through the ER entrance on the weekends.

5.) We are restricting the number of visitors to two per patient per day, 1 hour or less, to minimize the risk of exposure for all visitors.

6.) We strongly discourage people who are at high risk of developing severe complications from COVID-19, including older adults, those with underlying medical conditions, and children under the age of 16 to visit.

7.) Visitors will be restricted to the patient’s room only.

8.) Alternatives to in-person visits are available to all patients, including video and audio calls.

9.) No visitation is allowed during aerosol-generation procedures or during the collection of respiratory specimens.

“Our top priority remains to maintain a safe environment for our patients, families and staff,” stated Jose Kottoor, Chief Executive Officer, Lake Huron Medical Center. “We are taking all necessary measures and precautions to protect the safety and well-being of our patients and staff.”

Visitation guidelines are subject to change based on changes to state guidelines regarding the COVID-19 situation and/or the condition of the patient. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation at this time as we protect the health and safety of our patients, community, and staff.
