UnityPoint Health-Trinity announced in a press release Wednesday that it is elevating current visitor limitations, until further notice, to further protect its patients and health care workers due to a resurgence of COVID-19 cases in the community.

• Obstetric patients may have one partner and one birth support person accompany them.

• Nursery and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) patients may have one birth parent plus one significant other who must remain in the room for the duration of the visit.

• Patients who are at the end-of-life, or discussing end-of-life care decisions, may have two visitors.

• Patients with disruptive behavior, where a family member is key to their care, may have one visitor.

• Patients who have altered mental status or developmental delays (where caregiver provides safety) may have one visitor.

• Minors under the age of 18 may have one visitor, parent, or guardian.

• Patients undergoing surgery or procedures may have one visitor stay in the surgical waiting area or ambulatory room until the procedure is finished. After speaking with the surgeon following the procedure, the visitor must leave the hospital as soon as possible.
