Waverly Health Center modifies visitor policy
Waverly - To help reduce the spread of the virus during the COVID-19 Pandemic, visitors were limited to one adult visitor per patient in Waverly Health Center’s hospital and clinics since March 2020. Beginning Tuesday, April 27, 2021, WHC has increased its pandemic visitor policy to two adult visitors per patient.

All visitors must be healthy and are screened for signs and symptoms of illness or known exposure to the COVID-19 virus upon entry into the facility. For the safety of patients, staff and other visitors, individuals with symptoms of illness such as fever greater than 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit, cough, sore throat, runny nose, shortness of breath, fatigue, chills, vomiting, or diarrhea must postpone their visits until all symptoms have resolved.

“Our hospital recognizes the important role that visitors and caregivers play in the well being of our patients,” said Heidi Solheim, interim chief executive officer. “Due to the low virus positivity rates and the high vaccination status of our community, we are able to begin loosening some of the restrictions that were necessary to keep our patients and staff healthy. We will continue to monitor the situation and reassess our policies as needed.”
