KVH MASKING REQUIREMENTS
KVH recommends wearing a mask. A mask is required if:
• You have experienced any of the following symptoms in the last 48 hours:
• You have been in close contact in the past 10 days with someone who has
tested positive for COVID-19.
• You have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 10 days.
• You are asked by a patient or KVH staff member to mask.
Clean your hands often by using alcohol-based hand sanitizer or soap and water.
KVH Hospital encourages family and friends to visit loved ones in the hospital. However, please remember our patients are here for healing and recuperation; we ask that you be considerate during your visit.
Family and visitors are asked not to come to the hospital if they are feeling ill or have signs of, or have recently been exposed to, communicable illnesses or infections. Hospital personnel may ask family and visitors to leave if they show signs of illness.
Visitors should take proper hygienic precautions by using hand sanitizers when entering and exiting patient care areas. Hand sanitizer stations are frequently located throughout the hospital.
Cell Phone Use
Visitors who wish to make or receive calls on their cell phones are encouraged to leave the patient’s room and go to the designated waiting area.
Other exceptions may be made at the discretion of the KVH clinical care team.
