COVID-19 Update: Clergy Visitation Guidelines

Clergy Visitation Guidelines 

Clergy visits are allowed if requested by patients (or family if patient is unable) during regular visiting hours. Clergy are allowed to visit multiple patients in the same visit, as requested by patients. Clergy visits do not count as designated visitors for patients. Clergy are not required to be vaccinated in order to visit.
