Updated May 7, 2020
The following visitor guidelines, updated May 7, 2020, will apply to most Sentara hospitals, including all levels of care and the Emergency Department:
- All non-COVID-19 patients and patients who are not under investigation for COVID-19 may have one visitor.
- Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and end-of-life patients may have two visitors.
Please note that certain Sentara hospitals may have additional visitor guidelines, so we recommend checking with the facility before planning a visit.
Sentara Life Care Facilities
Sentara Life Care is asking all visitors to nursing and rehabilitation centers, our assisted living village and PACE centers, including family members, contractors and volunteers, to not visit these facilities until further notice.
Exceptions can be approved by site administrators and directors of nursing for end-of-life situations when families need to gather.
These restrictions are being implemented to protect the health and well-being of our most vulnerable residents and our employees.
