COVID-19 Policy Change: CVPH Visitor/ Welcoming Policy

Effective Date:  6/17/2021
We know how vital families and support people are to our patients during their hospital stay which is why we are pleased to welcome you back on limited basis. Below is an outline of our new Welcoming Policy developed in accordance with New York State Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.
*See below to know where to enter the building.

*All designated support persons are required to follow infection prevention guidelines including remaining masked at all times, following PPE and hand hygiene expectations and maintaining social distancing.

Visiting Safely

Reducing the risk of exposure to COVID-19 continues to be part of everything we do here. As a visitor, we’re asking for your participation in that effort. Screening all who enter CVPH, social distancing, using appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), wearing masks and meticulous hand hygiene are key components to our success in reducing the spread of the virus. However, the risk is not completely eliminated and as more people return to our facility, the importance of following these measures is greater than ever before.

  •  ADA service animals and approved therapy dogs are permitted. All others animals are not allowed at this time.
