Restrictions now to include locations in addition to hospitals

To create a safe and secure environment for our patients and our health care workers during the COVID-19 outbreak, visitors will no longer be allowed in any Banner Health locations, effective immediately. This includes outpatient and ambulatory locations, such as: clinics, urgent cares, imaging centers, surgery centers and occupational health services locations. We understand this will be challenging, but we’re committed to take the necessary precautions to protect our patients, health care workers and the community.

There are three exceptions to the visitor restriction at hospitals:

  • Pediatric patients (under the age of 18) may have one adult visitor with them.
  • Laboring mothers may have one support person with them.
  • Individuals with physical or cognitive limitations or disabilities who require support may have one adult visitor with them.

Visitors are subject to a health screening at all locations to ensure they are not exhibiting symptoms of respiratory illness.

Additional information and resources:

  • Visit Banner Health’s COVID-19 webpage for the more information about COVID-19 and changes at Banner Health due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
  • Banner Health also has an online symptom checker for those who are concerned about their symptoms.
