Under the current restriction guidelines, no visitors under the age of 14 are allowed. Anyone experiencing symptons of the seasonal flu or coronavirus (including shortness of breath, fever, coughing, headache, chills, sore throat, vomiting) are allowed visitation. Patients are limited to one visitor per day, who must be a spouse, significant other or parent/legal guardian. As an exception, Dayton’s Children’s Hospital will be allowing two parents/guardians to visit. 

Patients in the emergency department may have one support person. Obstetrics patients are allowed one partner and one birth-support person. Patients who need assistance with mobility, interpretation or personal health decision-making are allowed an additional assistance person. Visitors are asked to primarily remain in the patient’s room when in the building.  

Exceptions to these restrictions may be permitted due to unique circumstances, including situations regarding end-of-life care.
