COVID-19 Visitation Guidelines

Onsite visitation plays a vital role in the wellness and recovery of those we serve. Effective March 1, 2021 OhioMHAS Regional Psychiatric Hospitals will begin to allow onsite visitation to patients on non-quarantine/medical isolation treatment units with the following precautions in place:

  • Screening for temperatures and symptom-reporting for visitors per OhioMHAS Visitor Screening.
  • Visitation must occur in a designated location.
  • Visitation must be scheduled in advance.
  • Visitation is limited to one visitor per day for 30 minutes
  • Visitors must be escorted
  • Proper social distancing measures. Physical contact with visitors will not be permitted which includes hugging, kissing, or holding hands.
  • Patients and visitors must wear a mask at all times. Should a visitor not have a mask, the OhioMHAS Regional Psychiatric Hospital will provide a disposable surgical mask to the visitor.
  • Hand hygiene must be provided and utilized.
  • Education about the risks of the spread of COVID-19 provided to all visitors.
  • Specified visitation areas must be cleaned, disinfected, and remain unused for visitation for 30 minutes after each visit.
