Peace Island Medical Center reduces visitor restrictions
Posted September 12, 2022 at 1:14 pm by San Juan Update
PeaceHealth sends along news about its revised visitation policies.
PeaceHealth is pleased to announce that effective immediately visitors are again allowed — one per patient and one at a time — at Peace Island Medical Center.
Visitors are still required to wear a mask in healthcare settings, per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state health department guidelines.
The easing of restrictions comes as COVID-19 transmission rates in San Juan County continue to fall. In alignment with other Washington state healthcare organizations, PeaceHealth is using the CDC’s transmission map to guide us on next steps in COVID-19 response in our communities. The decision was made after San Juan County had maintained a lower transmission risk level for more than seven days, thereby meeting PeaceHealth’s criteria for easing restrictions.
In addition to visitors, volunteers will again be allowed inside PeaceHealth Peace Island with no restrictions.
Although we’re pleased to be able to ease these policies, we remain cautious and are prepared to tighten up protocols should trends again reverse.
