General information for all visitors across all Care New England Hospitals:

At Care New England, we understand that having supportive family or friends present benefits the health and well-being of our patients. Our care teams must balance that benefit with the science of preventing the spread of coronavirus. For the safety of our patients, families, staff, and the greater community, Care New England has adopted the guidance below for safe visitation. Visitation looks different at each of our unique hospitals, due to the difference in patient populations served and the physical spaces to provide social distancing.

  • All visitors will be verbally screened upon arrival and will have their temperatures taken. Those visitors with fever or other risk factors for COVID will not be allowed to visit.
  • Visitors under the age of 18 are not allowed at this time.
  • Universal masking is proven to help prevent the spread of COVID. Visitors must wear a mask at all times while in the facility.
  • Social distancing helps prevent spread of COVID. All visitors must maintain a distance of 6 feet from others, including patients, while in our facilities.
  • Special accommodations to allow visitation for patients with a disability are available, such as when a support person is essential to the care of a patient with developmental disabilities.
