To protect our patients from the flu and other common illnesses, M Health Fairview locations enforce visitor restrictions year-round. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken additional steps to ensure the health of our patients, including the implementation of enhanced visitor restrictions at all M Health Fairview locations. View a list of our locations here.
For everyone's safety, a limited number of visitors are allowed at M Health Fairview hospitals and clinics. In special circumstances, some additional accommodations can be made for families. See guidelines below.
We understand these measures may be difficult for our patients and families. Our top priority is to protect the health and safety of the people under our care. Patients are encouraged to work with their care team to find other ways to connect with loved ones.
Labor, Delivery, and Post-Partum Patients:
Children under 18:
Mental Health and Addiction:

If you are approved for a visit, please follow these guidelines. These guidelines apply even if you received a COVID-19 vaccine.
Masks are required for all patients and visitors to our facilities, with exceptions for children under age 2, those with health conditions who cannot wear masks, and those needing emergency care. Please arrive wearing a mask that covers your mouth and nose and keep it on during your entire visit. This is to protect you and other patients and staff. You will need to reschedule your visit if you are not wearing a mask, unless it is an emergency. If you are unable to wear a mask and do not need emergency care, we suggest arranging for virtual care through Oncare.org. Learn more about our masking standards.
All visitors to our hospitals and clinics will be screened for symptoms and COVID-19 risk at each visit. You cannot visit if you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath, muscle aches, headaches, sore throat, or diarrhea. Watch for signs at the location you are visiting for more information.
Clean your hands with alcohol-based hand sanitizer when you arrive and leave. Stay at least six feet away from others during your visit, and please go directly to and from the room you are visiting. Stay in the patient’s room during your visit. You may be asked to step out briefly for patient procedures.
Leave bags, jackets, or belongings at home or in the care. For everyone’s health, please do not come and go during your visit.
We understand that not being able to visit loved ones is difficult. We encourage patients to work with their care team on alternative methods to connect and give and receive support. Learn how you can connect virtually with your loved one during these times through our handout.

Family members may drop off essential items for patients such as glasses, hearing aids, computers, phones, chargers, and clothes.
