Flu season visitor policy

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, visitors are not allowed at Community Hospital in most cases. The health and safety of our patients, staff, physicians, volunteers, and visitors is a top priority for Montage Health. We have implemented visitor restrictions and a screening process, in concert with CDPH guidance and guidelines from the CDC and other regulatory entities. We also remain a caring, compassionate, and thoughtful organization, and recognize that there are significant life events and practical reasons that require us to have a set of appropriate exceptions to the visitor restrictions.
