Visiting Guidelines

FOR THE SAFETY OF PATIENTS, STAFF AND COMMUNITY, CARLE LIMITS VISITORS AND SUPPORT PEOPLE IN OUR FACILITIES.

Support persons must be over 14 or a patient’s parent. Each hospital and their surrounding outpatient clinics have established visitor guidelines that support the needs of local community transmission and their location procedural requirements. Outpatient clinics throughout the region currently allow each patient to have one support person, two if the patient is under the age of 18, with them during their visit.

Per federal guidelines, masks continue to be required in all healthcare facilities, including all Carle locations. Please be prepared to wear a mask for the entirety of your visit. Acceptable face coverings include non-medical disposable or fabric masks. that cover the nose and mouth at all times.

The CDC does not recommend masks with exhalation valves because they may not prevent you from spreading germs to others. A face shield does not replace a mask. Masks are available at the front desk if needed.
