ST. CLOUD -- CentraCare is once again implementing a no visitor policy at all of its facilities.

The restrictions are due to the current surge of positive COVID-19 cases in the community.

Exceptions to the restrictions will be allowed for patients/visitors experiencing the following situations:

  • End of life
  • Critically ill
  • Parent/legal guardian of a minor patient
  • Legal guardian of an adult with cognitive/developmental disabilities
  • Labor support
  • High-risk procedures requiring in-person discussions about care and informed consent

Patients in these situations will be limited to one healthy visitor per day during visitation hours. All visitors entering a CentraCare or Carris Health facility will be screened for signs and symptoms of COVID-19.

Visitors are also required to wear a mask that covers both nose and mouth.

The changes will go into effect on Wednesday.
