- Only one healthy visitor will be allowed per patient at a time.
- Visitors will not be allowed to visit COVID-positive patients in person.

- Children under the age of 18 are restricted from visiting at this time.
Patients seeking care will be seen, but visitors experiencing cough, sore throat, fever or any other flu-like symptoms will not be permitted in the building.
The restricted visitor policy that has been in place in the Residential Healthcare Facility at the hospital will continue.
Leaders and staff are monitoring the COVID situation at UHS Hospitals locations to determine if and when visitation might be restricted once again at those locations.
Any changes to UHS’ visitation policies will be announced as they happen at nyuhs.org.
