New visitor guidelines now in effect at Beacon Health System hospitals

Visitor guidelines for our Beacon Health System hospitals have changed.

Starting today (Wednesday, Jan. 19, 2022), visitors should be age 12 or older to visit a hospitalized patient. There continues to be a limit of two healthy visitors at a time per patient. All visitors will also continue to be screened and required to wear a disposable mask at all times while in our hospitals.

This temporary change has been made for the health and safety of our patients, visitors, caregivers and the community. For more information about the new guidelines and other information related to the COVID-19 pandemic, please visit
