Sanford Health implements visitor restrictions

Due to the sustained increase in respiratory illnesses and influenza across Minnesota, Sanford Bemidji Medical Center, Sanford Bagley Medical Center, Sanford Health WoodsEdge (Neilson Place, Trillium, WindSong), Sanford Baker Park and Sanford Health Mahnomen Clinic are implementing visitor restrictions.

Sanford is placing these guidelines in order to protect patients/residents and employees from catching and spreading respiratory illnesses, including influenza.

Beginning at 8 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 19, Sanford will put in place the following restrictions for all visitors, including staff members and their families. Only two visitors (5 years and older) per patient. Patient visitors are limited to clergy and immediate family members, including:

  • Spouse or significant other
  • Parent or grandparent
  • In-laws
  • Sibling
  • Children (5 years and older)
  • All children ages 5-14 must wear a mask while visiting.
  • Visitors who are ill (showing signs of respiratory illness or influenza, including fever or chills, muscle or body aches, sore throat, cough, stuffy nose, headache and fatigue) may not visit unless granted permission for compassionate reasons, such as end-of-life care.
Sanford would like to thank the public for their patience and understanding as we work together to help avoid the spread of respiratory illnesses.
