With declining COVID-19 cases, Madison hospitals ease visitor policies

UnityPoint Health-Meriter

UnityPoint Health-Meriter in Madison.

Madison’s three main general hospitals said Wednesday they are easing limitations on visitors, citing “a promising decline in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations locally.”

Starting Monday, one visitor generally will be allowed for adult patients at UnityPoint Health—Meriter, UW Health and SSM Health hospitals and clinics. Two primary support people will be allowed for each pediatric patient.

Masks continue to be required in all health care settings and those with exposure to, symptoms of, or confirmed COVID-19 should not visit, the hospitals said in a statement.

The visitor process may differ slightly among the health systems, especially for patients who have COVID-19 or who are at end-of-life. For more details on each policy, go to:
