To protect our patients from the flu and other common illnesses, M Health Fairview locations enforce visitor restrictions year round. Due to the spread of COVID-19 in Minnesota, 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.
A limited number of visitors are allowed at M Health Fairview hospitals and hospital-based clinics. We understand that limiting visitors may be difficult for our patients and families. Our top priority is to protect the health and safety of our patients. Patients are encouraged to work with their care team to find other ways to connect with their loved ones.
To ensure the safety of our patients and families, we continue to encourage patients to attend clinic appointments alone. When necessary, one visitor may escort a patient to their outpatient/clinic appointment. Pediatric patients may be accompanied by two visitors for their appointment. No visitors under the age of 18 will be allowed.
Visitors are not allowed to accompany patients in congregate care settings such as infusion and dialysis.
Capacity for visitors is subject to social distancing requirements. When volumes prevent sufficient distancing, visitors may be asked to return when the patient is ready.
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. 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.
All visitors to our hospitals and clinics will be screened for symptoms and COVID-19 risk at each visit. Watch for signs at the location you are visiting for more information. Learn more about our masking standards.
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.
No preventive vaccines or antiviral treatments are currently available for the virus causing COVID-19. Help us reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission by taking these steps:
Stay up-to-date on the COVID-19 pandemic by visiting the Minnesota Department of Health’s website or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention resource.
Due to infection prevention concerns, flower and gift deliveries are not allowed at our hospitals at this time. However, permitted visitors can bring flowers or gifts with them when they visit.
Valet services are suspended until further notice. Suspending our valet services is another precaution that we are taking to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Please self-park your vehicle before entering our facilities. See addresses and maps for available parking below.
