COVID-19 Visitor Information

The rules for visiting patients at Blanchard Valley Health System facilities can change at any time, depending on what's happening with the pandemic and current government health orders. Please check this page for the latest information before you go.

This is a challenging time and it can be hard not to have visitors. If you are a patient, we suggest you bring a smartphone or laptop to help communicate with the important people in your life. If you do not have access to a smartphone or laptop, tell us so we can try to help.


All visitors must wear masks over their nose and mouth, and under their chin at all times when indoors. Masks are also required outside in a small zone around our doorways. Visitors who do not comply with these rules will be asked to leave the premises.


To enter you must:

Have a temperature less than 100° and no flu-like symptoms (cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain or sore throat)

Any visitor who screens positive may not enter any BVHS facility.
