Updated: November 4, 2022

Visitors must complete a COVID-19 self-screening at the entrance. 

Mask guidelines for patients and visitors in our healthcare facilities (Updated 10.25.22)

Beacon requires patients and visitors to wear masks when in our patient care areas, where patients are gathered and when patients are being moved from one area of the facility to another. This helps protect our most vulnerable patients as well as our visitors and staff.

Please wear a mask whenever asked by a Beacon staff member. Masks are available in our facilities.

Masks should also be worn if: 

  • You have any cold or upper respiratory symptoms, even if you test negative for COVID-19
  • You have had an exposure to someone with COVID-19 in the past 10 days
  • You have had contact with a symptomatic or COVID-19 positive patient
  • If you choose to wear a mask

Masks are optional:

  • In public areas of our healthcare facilities where patient care is not being provided. This includes main hallways and cafeterias.
  • In Beacon’s non-healthcare facilities. Examples include Beacon Health & Fitness locations, Beacon Home Care Pharmacy and business offices.

Most Patients (Negative for COVID):

  • Visiting hours 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Limit of 2 healthy visitors at a time per hospitalized patient
  • Please note: Due to state-mandated guidelines in Michigan, our Three Rivers hospital, clinics and medical offices have different visitor guidelines. View Three Rivers Health location>

COVID-positive/PUI patients:

Up to two (2) visitors may visit if the patient’s condition allows.

  • Visitors must be adults in order to visit COVID-positive patients, except in extenuating circumstances
  • Visitors must adhere to required PPE to enter a patient’s room.
  • Visitors will receive documented education on infection risks and proper protection.
  • Visitors for COVID-positive patients in airborne isolation: Duration of visit will be limited; visitors may not be present during some procedures. Additional personal protective equipment is required.

Visiting someone with COVID-19? What you need to know

Outpatient Visits (Diagnostic Testing/Physician Offices)

We encourage patients to attend outpatient visits alone, which helps limit the risk of spreading COVID-19 and other illnesses. We understand, however, that this is not always possible in special instances when patients need a support person or if a parent is caring for young children during a visit

Se permiten visitas limitadas dentro de los siguientes lineamientos:

Actualizado: 19 de Enero de 2022

Los visitantes deben someterse a un cribado de COVID-19 autoexamen en la entrada. Asimismo, deben usar una máscara protectora descartable en todo momento mientras estén dentro del centro hospitalario o establecimiento, incluso cuando se encuentran en la habitación de un paciente.

La Mayoría de Pacientes (Negativos de COVID):

  • Horario de visitas de 7 a.m. a 7 p.m.
  • Máximo de 2 visitantes sanos de 12 años o más a la vez por paciente hospitalizado
  • Tenga en cuenta lo siguiente: Debido a las normas estatales de Michigan, nuestro Three Rivers
    Hospital, clínicas y consultorios médicos tienen diferentes normas en relación con los
    visitantes. Vea la ubicación de Three Rivers Health

Pacientes Positivos de COVID/Pacientes bajo investigación (PBI):

Pueden ingresar hasta dos (2) visitantes si la condición del paciente lo permite.

  • Los visitantes deben ser adultos para poder visitar a pacientes COVID positivo, salvo en circunstancias especiales

¿Visitando alguien con Covid-19? Lo que debe saber

Consultas de pacientes ambulatorios (Pruebas de diagnóstico/consultorios médicos)
Alentamos a los pacientes a asistir solos a las consultas ambulatorias, lo que ayuda a
limitar el riesgo de propagación del COVID-19 y otras enfermedades. Sin embargo, comprendemos que esto no siempre es posible en casos especiales en los que los pacientes necesitan una persona de ayuda o un padre/madre está cuidando niños pequeños durante una visita.
