Visitor Screening

To protect everyone on our campus from the spread of COVID-19, we enacted a strict visitor screening and visitation policy.

Visitors entering Sibley will be asked to sign in and respond to the following screening questions:

  • Do you have fever, cough, shortness of breath, muscle aches, sore throat, unexplained loss of taste or smell, headache or diarrhea?
  • Have you had close contact with someone who has COVID-19?
  • Visitors who answer yes to any of the screening questions will be asked to leave the facility.
  • Individuals who answer yes to any of the screening questions but who have a scheduled appointment or are seeking emergency care will be allowed to enter the facility. They will be asked to put on a face mask before entering.
  • Those accompanying patients for an appointment will not be permitted to enter if they have a fever, cough, shortness of breath or have had close contact with someone who has COVID-19.
  • Upon entering the facility as well as entering and exiting patient rooms, individuals will be asked to hand wash or use hand-sanitizing gel.
  • Please plan to arrive early for your appointment to allow time to complete the screening process.


  • Special Care Nursery: Two designated caregivers per patient
  • Labor & Delivery and post-partum: One designated visitor

For additional exceptions please visit our patient resource site around Coronavirus.

Patients and visitors may use the following entrances:

Due to the changing nature of COVID-19 state guidelines and restrictions, we recommend incoming patients refer questions regarding the latest visitation policy to their nurse upon admission. Expecting parents may register for a Virtual Maternity Tour to get the most recent COVID-19 policies; however, please note the policy may change at the time of admission.
