Due to a recent decrease in community spread of COVID-19, patients visiting Gundersen Health System hospitals and clinic can soon bring one person with them.
Beginning, Monday, Jan. 4, one person, 16 years old or older, may accompany a patient. Restrictions still apply for COVID-positive hospitalized patients, as well as patients with COVID symptoms in Emergency Services and Urgent Care.
Pediatric patients at Gundersen clinic locations will continue to be allowed one person with them. A sibling is only allowed when both pediatric patients have appointments within two hours of each other.
Guidelines may differ for select Gundersen Critical Access Hospital locations.
