COVID-19 Precautions: Increased Visitor Limitations

Atlantic, IA —Cass County Health System officials announced increased visitor limitations are now in effect at all CCHS facilities. This measure is being enacted to protect the health of patients, staff, volunteers, and visitors and to proactively limit the spread of COVID-19.

Effective immediately:

  • Laboring mothers can have only one essential support person.
  • End-of-life patients can have only one essential support person.
  • Pediatric patients can have only one essential support person.
  • Outpatients can have only one essential support person.

All essential support persons must be 18 years of age or older and in good health. They will be screened at the entrance before being allowed to proceed. If they do not pass the screening questions, then an alternate support person can take their place.

All other visitors, family members, and friends are encouraged to use technology to keep in contact with their loved ones.
