Baptist Health Care COVID-19 Update #20 July 14, 2020
Because the recent spike in the number of COVID-19 cases in our state and local area threatens the health of everyone, Baptist Health Care has revised its visitation policy. Effective Wednesday, July 15 at 5 a.m., no visitors will be permitted at Baptist, Gulf Breeze and Jay Hospitals, Baptist Towers and all Baptist Health Care medical parks, urgent care centers and physician offices. Visitor exceptions will be made for end-of-life situations, critical caregivers and essential support persons.
The visitation policy includes limited entry doors. All patients and authorized support persons entering any Baptist Health Care location must wear a mask, be screened and have a temperature check. They should allow extra time upon arrival for this screening. Screening stations are set up at select entrances of all locations.
Detailed information about the policy is available at https://ebaptisthealthcare.org/Covid-19-Information/visitation-during-covid.
Baptist recognizes and greatly values the vital role friends and family play in restoring the health of their loved ones, but these measures are essential at this time for the wellbeing of all patients, team members and the community.
