March 21, 2020 – Jackson Health System’s top priority is to protect our patients, guests and healthcare workers. Effective immediately, we will not allow visitors for most of our hospital patients. We encourage the use of phone calls, electronic messages, and videoconference.
Only pediatric, maternity, and inpatient rehabilitation patients may have one healthy visitor who is at least 12 years old, and it should be the same visitor every day. Limited exceptions are made by hospital administrators for special circumstances.
All patients and visitors entering a Jackson facility will be asked screening questions and may be denied entry if they present a risk to our patients, guests, and healthcare workers. Visitors may also have their temperature taken before entering our facilities.
Visitors will not be permitted to bring bags of any kind into the hospital.
