COVID-19 Safety Measures

COVID-19 has changed many things, but visiting your doctor shouldn't be one of them. At Gundersen's seven hospitals and more than 60 clinics, we continue to practice important safety precautions to keep you and your family safe when you seek our care. We know that your health is a top priority. It's ours, too.

Testing and vaccine information

Keeping you safe while you're here

Face coverings

Effective April 24, 2023, masking is optional at all of our locations. If you’re ill and need our care, please mask to protect our patients, visitors and your care team. Review our guidelines if you’re planning to visit our hospitals or clinics. 

Entrance screening

Our patients also play a big role in keeping our hospitals and clinics safe for everyone. That's why you'll see a sign at our doors asking whether you've tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 10 days or are symptomatic for the virus. If so, visit one of our information desks. You'll need to wear a mask, even after you received the COVID-19 vaccination, because you can still spread the virus without knowing it.



You can check-in for your appointment on your device up to 7 days before your appointment. By using MyChart eCheck-In and Self Arrival, you can complete information before you even get to the check-in desk. 

Cleaning precautions

Clean locations are always a priority for your experience, but we've increased routine cleaning in every area you will visit. We increased our ongoing sanitation measures, especially in high-traffic areas, like patient rooms, lobbies and elevators.

Visitor policy

We know how important family is for the healing process. However, to protect our patients, staff and community during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have modified our visitor policy. There will still be exceptions for end-of-life, interpreter/communication needs, surgery, Labor and Delivery, emergency room and pediatric patients. See our latest visitor guidelines.
