Coronavirus (COVID-19) Preparedness Information Learn More
Fauquier Health is committed to providing the highest quality of care and ensuring the safety of our patients, employees, providers, volunteers and visitors. We continue to monitor the evolving situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19) on a daily basis and are taking the necessary steps to ensure we provide a safe environment of care for patients, in accordance with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and in partnership with our local and state health departments.
In an effort to help prevent further spread of the COVID-19 virus, we have enacted limited visitation to ensure the safety and well-being of staff and patients. The facility continues to encourage use of alternative mechanisms for patient and visitor interactions such as video-call applications on cell phones or tablets. There may be specific circumstances where use of technology will be the only acceptable form of patient and visitor interactions.
COVID-19 VISITOR POLICY
|Updated July 24, 2020|
All approved visitors may enter the facility upon passing a temperature check (100° F and below) and providing acknowledgement of the required screening questions. Screening requirements are based off CDC symtpoms and testing. Face masks/coverings are required for entry. Visiting hours for approved visitors will be limited to 11:00am-6:00pm. Admitted patients may be eligible to have one or more visitors during their stay, depending on the circumstances. See below for details:
Inpatients (patients requiring hospital stay)
Outpatients (patients not requiring hospital stay)
All visitors will be encouraged to bring their own facemask or face covering when entering any Fauquier Health system building. The following instructions will be provided upon arrival:
Fauquier Health is taking every precaution to keep our patients and staff safe, and prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our facilities. For this reason, we are following the CDC recommendation that anyone who enters our facility must wear a face mask at all times. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own mask from home to help conserve hospital supplies for patients and staff.
Why wear a mask? Recent studies show that universal masking, in addition to practicing social distancing and proper hand hygiene, can help prevent the spread of infectious diseases like COVID-19, especially in individuals who may not know they are ill. And until there is a vaccine, these measures are our best line of defense in protecting not only you, but also our healthcare workers and community members.
Please be smart and do your part. Wear a mask! We all have a responsibility to protect one another against the spread of COVID-19 and make our communities healthier. For more information from the CDC on face coverings and how to make your own, click here.
