Update On New CDC Guidelines
On May 13, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced new masking guidelines for individuals who are fully vaccinated. These guidelines are intended for daily activities. For settings like hospitals and health care clinics, the CDC continues to recommend masks, social distancing, screening and other precautions.
For everyone’s safety, all individuals within our facilities will continue to be required to wear a face covering. Please review our guidelines below.
Our goal is to provide a safe, healing environment. For everyone’s safety, please respect these guidelines.
Everyone in our facilities is required to wear a face covering. If you do not have your own face covering, a disposable mask will be provided to you.
Patients: A face covering must be worn over your mouth and nose at all times, unless otherwise instructed by your care team. Exceptions will be made for patients who are unable to wear a face covering due to a medical condition or disability.
Visitors and staff: A face covering must be worn over your mouth and nose at all times. Exceptions will not be made for visitors or staff.
* Patient may choose two visitors. Visitor(s) must be the same individual(s) throughout the patient’s stay.
- Visitors should remain in the patient’s room.
- Visitors must be 18 years of age or older.
Exceptions may include:
- Patients with disabilities regardless of COVID-19 status, end-of-life decisions and care, and other limited situations.
We understand the importance of keeping patients connected with their loved ones while receiving care. To stay connected, we encourage patients and families to use phone or video chat when in-person visits are not an option.
Vendor access to all of our hospitals, clinics and extended campuses, including nonpatient care and administrative sites, is limited. Please coordinate all visits with your Froedtert Health representative and/or relevant department leader prior to entering any location.
All vendors will be required to pass a verbal screening for COVID-19 symptoms and must provide their own face covering, to be worn at all times.
