Peace Island Medical Center reduces visitor restrictions

Posted September 12, 2022 at 1:14 pm by

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.
