NO visitors in the clinic buildings with patients UNLESS it is a pediatric patient, or a cognitively impaired patient.

Visitor restrictions are temporary and subject to change as necessary. All caregivers are required to wash hands with soap and water or use alcohol-based hand foam/gel upon entering and exiting patient rooms.

While we are committed to providing a family-centered care environment, right now restricting visitors is in the best interest of our patients, employees, and community.

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, shortness of breath), call the Illness Clinic at 217-357-0617 before walking in.
