Visitor Policy

CentraCare is committed to protecting the health and safety of our patients, staff and visitors. Visitor recommendations are in place at our hospitals and clinics. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to have visitor guidelines at our hospitals and clinics.

Visiting hours are from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. for inpatient settings and normal business hours for outpatient settings. Some exceptions apply. Talk to your care team for special circumstances.

Visitors must be healthy, not having any symptoms of COVID-19, positive COVID-19 test in previous 10 days or known close contact with someone positive for COVID-19 in previous 10 days.

Clinic Settings:

  • Two healthy adult visitors per adult patient, and two healthy visitors for minor patients are recommended within the health care facility.

Hospital Settings - Adult, Pediatric and Emergency Departments:

  • Two healthy visitors per patient are recommended within the health care facility.

For the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU):

  • In the CentraCare - St. Cloud Hospital NICU Department, parents and caregivers are welcome to visit. Siblings 5 years and older can visit if they are healthy and accompanied by a parent.

There are some exceptions and separate guidance for certain patient groups. Please talk to your care team about special circumstances.

These guidelines do not pertain to our long-term care facilities because of different regulations for vulnerable populations.
