Important visitor information during COVID-19

For safety reasons, there are no visitors allowed in our emergency center, operating and procedure areas and for any patient with COVID-19. All other patients are allowed one adult visitor per patient, per day. Exceptions to these policies include:

  • Newborn, special care nursery and pediatric patients: Parents and/or legal guardians (COVID-19 patients: only one person)
  • Birth center patients: Two support persons, including a doula (COVID-19 patients: only one person)
  • Patients who need additional assistance: A caregiver or attendant
  • Compassionate care patients (end-of-life patients)

We’re encouraging patients to find other ways to connect with their loved ones, such as FaceTime, Skype or setting up Google Duo (PDF). Our patient care teams can help arrange video chats and more.

We require all patients and visitors to wear a mask or face covering while in our hospitals. We’re also screening all patients and visitors for symptoms of COVID-19. To see if you should be tested for COVID-19, please visit our COVID-19 testing page.

Visiting a patient at Lakeview

We know how important family and friends are to the healing and recovery process. All HealthPartners hospitals, including Lakeview, welcome family to visit anytime. Family members are defined by the patient and are not limited to blood relatives. The number of people welcomed at bedside at any one time will be determined in collaboration with the patient and family.
