COVID Safety Policy for Patients and Visitors

We know that while most of our patients are able to visit Bellin on their own, others need someone to come along and help. We want to do everything we can to accommodate you.

  • For your safety and everyone else’s, we ask that all visitors pass our entry screening and wear a mask at all times
  • If you’re a patient and you don’t need a support person, we ask that you come alone

Thanks for helping us stop the spread of COVID-19.


Those allowed to be with the patient as noted below, will be required to wear a face covering and follow safety precautions related to handwashing and social distancing.  (This is without exception.)  Those visitors that are unable to tolerate a face covering will not be allowed to visit.  Visitors should self-monitor prior to arrival, and those that are ill, are currently experiencing COVID symptoms, or have had COVID-19 in the past 14 days should not visit in person.  Arrangements can be made to allow virtual visitation. **definition of one visitor means “only one visitor at a time in the building”.  In the past we learned that it isn’t always possible for the same person to be present during all the patients stay-and families may need to alternate.  Exception: 2 visitors will be allowed when a newborn is being cared for throughout the system

Bellin Health has created an additional resource for patients that are unable to have visitors or have family that are ill and unable to enter the family.

The Bellin Angels are here to ensure that our patients are able to stay connected with their loved ones, even if they cannot be with them.  Angels can help connect patients to their loved ones virtually.  If you would like access to the Bellin Angels Team, please call Chaplaincy at (920) 433-3482.
