Mclean Hospital

Visitor Policy in Response to COVID-19

Policies updated April 6, 2020

Effective, Wednesday, March 18, 2020, we will no longer allow routine visitors/patient attendants into our facilities for the foreseeable future.

We understand how important family and friends are to patient care, so there will be exceptions. If you would like to visit a patient, please call the patient’s program to discuss these exceptions before you head out the door.

As a reminder, all visitors must be over 18 years of age and healthy. Visitors in any clinical setting will be supplied with a procedural or surgical mask, which must be worn.

Visitors may be screened for flu-like symptoms, such as fever, cough, or sore throat. Any visitor with obvious signs of illness will be asked to kindly leave. Any visitors will also be encouraged to remain six feet away from patients at all times and wash or sanitize their hands before visiting a patient room.

We are discontinuing all public use of our conference and community space, effective immediately, until future notice. This includes canceling all events open to the public and/or community groups at any of our facilities.

We appreciate that these restrictions may cause challenges for our patients and their families. Thank you for your understanding and adherence to these policies as part of our continued efforts to keep our patients, visitors, and workforce protected and healthy during this time.
