GILLETTE, WY –
Campbell County Health (CCH) taking some initial steps back to a recovery of operations after
COVID-19, using a gradual approach with patient and staff safety as the first concern.
As of Monday, May 4, the Main Entrance of the
Campbell County Memorial Hospital (CCMH) is open. Some elective surgical cases, outpatient imaging radiology
services and lab services will reopen to the public.
Campbell County Medical Group clinics are developing plans to see more patients in their offices, although
phone visits and virtual visits will continue as options for patient care.
These outpatient services will use a phased-in approach where safety comes
first, not volume.

and temperatures are taken before entering the hospital, or clinic. All
patients are given a wristband ate hospital entrances to verify that they
have been screened.
Social distancing requirements are practiced in all areas of the facility,

or in line at the Coffee Shoppe.
All staff, patients, and support persons will be required to wear masks
while in CCH facilities. Cloth masks are provided at entrances. Staff
will wear masks appropriate to their job and exposure potential. All staff
and providers are screened for respiratory symptoms twice per day with

with bleach frequently throughout the day. Exam rooms are cleaned after
each patient visit to the highest medical standards.
