Temporary COVID-19 Related Visitor Guidelines

When Visiting a Baptist Health Facility:

To protect the health of our patients and community, anyone entering a Baptist Health facility will now be asked to complete an electronic COVID-19 screening form. This form can be found here and will provide you with next steps depending upon your screening status. This screening tool should not be used by Baptist Health employees reporting to work. This tool also does not store data. Thank you for partnering with us to support the health and wellbeing of our patients, visitors, staff, and community.

Visitor restrictions will continue for Baptist Health Medical Group offices and outpatient facilities. Baptist Health Medical Group, which includes medical offices and Baptist Health Urgent Care locations, will allow one visitor per patient. Both visitors and patients are asked to wear a mask, socially distance, and expect to be evaluated for COVID-19.

For hospital-specific restrictions please visit one of the locations below:
