Changes in Visiting Policies at Campbell County Health February 2021

GILLETTE, WY – Visiting policies at Campbell County Health (CCH) are changing as of Tuesday, February 18, 2021, due to:

  • The knowledge that that having friends and family help with healthcare is an important part of overall wellbeing
  • A decrease in community COVID-19 cases in the community and state

New visitor/support person policies for Inpatients*, Outpatients*, Surgery and Emergency Department include:

  • Up to two visitors/support persons per patient at one time
  • Visitors/support persons who leave the facility must be screened upon their return
  • Visitors/support persons must follow all PPE, handwashing and social distancing guidelines or they will be asked to leave
  • No visitors/support persons under age 16 are allowed
  • Visits to COVID-19 patients are restricted to end-of-life situations only

*Some departments or areas are restricted to one visitor/support person per patient, based on waiting room size or for therapeutic reasons. Screening staff have been trained on these exceptions. Patients and visitors should call the clinic or department if they have questions prior to their appointment or visit.

The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center

  • Visiting at The Legacy is limited and all visits must be scheduled.

All visitors/support persons who meet the above criteria must wear a face mask that completely covers their nose and mouth at all times. The changes in visiting policies are a response to the current situation and subject to change as needed.

We encourage everyone to reduce their risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus by staying home when sick, frequent handwashing, wearing a mask when in public and maintaining social distancing of at least six feet.
