Allina Health changes COVID-19 visitor limit policy

Although masking and social distancing will still be required within Allina Health facilities, the health care provider announced Friday a loosening of its rules for inpatient visitors.

For most inpatients, there will no longer be a specific limit on the number of visitors as long as they pass a COVID-19 screening and practice safe social distancing when possible, according to the announcement. Although the announcement doesn’t specify a new restriction limit, but all visitors will still be screened for symptoms consistent with COVID-19. 

In birth centers, two support people are allowed per patient during triage, labor and delivery.
