(Crosby, MN) — Cuyuna Regional Medical Center they will be lifting their patient visitor restrictions today (Tuesday, March 1st) and will allow limited visitors at all of their locations.

Two visitors will be allowed for COVID-19 negative hospitalized patients, those going to appointments and procedures, surgery, and on the Birthing unit. Pediatric patients may have two visitors at a time. End of life patients are allowed two visitors aged 18 and older at the bedside at the same time and visitors can switch throughout the day.

CRMC also says that visitors must continue to wear a facemask that fully covers their nose and mouth and pass the COVID-19 health screening before entering the facility. CRMC strongly recommends that visitors be vaccinated against cOVID-19 and practice physical distancing of at least 6 feet to the extent possible. Hand hygiene must be completed prior to entry and exiting any patient room.

Anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 cannot visit a patient until five days have passed since their positive test or exposure. Those who are sick or displaying flu-like symptoms of a fever, runny nose, cough, sore throat, vomiting, or diarrhea, are not allowed to visit hospital patients or accompany clinic patients to appointments.
