Effective Friday, June 19, 2020, Baraga County Memorial Hospital will transition to limited visitor restrictions as we slowly resume normal operations, including elective and non-emergent procedures.
“The patient and their safety is at the center of everything we do at BCMH,” stated Margie Hale, BCMH CEO. “We are constantly monitoring the COVID-19 crisis and adapting our practices to best fit the situation.”
As part of the updated visitor restrictions, patients may designate one well visitor per stay, including one companion for outpatient appointments. All visitors must be 18 years of age or older will be screened upon entry, and are required to wear a mask at all times in the facility.
Visitors who do not pass the screening at entry will be asked to reschedule their visit until they are symptom-free.
BCMH continues to screen everyone who enters the facility for symptoms consistent with COVID-19, per CDC guidelines and Executive Order.
