Mercy Cedar Rapids has adjusted its safety measures and visitor guidelines as COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths are rising around the country and locally because of the spread of the new and highly contagious Delta variant.
The following changes are in effect:
- All inpatient admissions will be tested for COVID-19.
- Patient visitation hours will be limited to 6 a.m.-7:30 p.m., and most areas will return to a maximum of one visitor at a time. Visitors must be in good health.
- Masks will now be required for all visitors during the entirety of their visit, including inside patient rooms.
