Information about COVID-19

Visitor guidelines

As we continue our fight against COVID-19, we also continue to review and update our visitation procedures. We miss having additional family members and siblings in our hospitals and clinics, and appreciate the continued commitment and partnership of our patient families and staff to provide a safe environment for everyone. Below are our current visitor practices:

In our Milwaukee and Fox Valley hospital patient care units

  • Patients without COVID-19: Two adults (age 18 and older) are allowed at the bedside at a time. Four adults are allowed on a patient’s visitor list. These four names must remain the same for the entire stay. Siblings and visitors under age 18 are not allowed in hospital patient care units at this time.
  • COVID-19-positive patients: Only one adult is allowed at the bedside at a time. If there are extenuating circumstances, the patient care manager on call may give approval to allow more than one individual at the bedside. Two adults are allowed on a patient’s visitor list. These two names must remain the same for the entire stay.

Specialty care, primary care, urgent care, labs, therapies, and community services – Two individuals may accompany the patient.

Surgicenter, Emergency Department Trauma Center (EDTC), Imaging, and surgical services on the Milwaukee campus – Two adults (age 18 and older) may accompany the patient.
