Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist is updating its visitor guidelines for inpatient, outpatient, maternity, emergency department and surgical services areas.
Effective immediately, all visitors must be at least 18 years of age. They must also pass a health screening and properly wear a mask that covers the nose, mouth and chin at all times. Parents or guardians are asked to only bring children as visitors to outpatient visits if childcare is not available.
Full visitation guidelines can be found here.
These changes apply to visitors of all patients, except those who have tested positive for COVID-19 or are suspected of having COVID-19. No visitors are permitted for these patients.
Families with special situations should contact their care team.
