Boulder Community Health (BCH) knows how important visitors are to a patient’s wellbeing. We are also committed to keeping our patients and staff safe throughout the year including times in which respiratory viruses are at higher levels. Below are some guidelines to help keep us all safe. If you have any questions, please let the BCH staff know.

  • BCH is returning to regular visitation guidelines and hours with the following exception: During Influenza season (November through May), children under the age of 12 are not allowed to visit these high-risk areas: critical care units, oncology inpatient units, NICU and Special Care Nursery. There are exceptions to this rule for those visiting patients who may be at end of life.
  • See COVID-19 visitation below.
  • All visitors are expected to conduct a COVID-19 self-screen before entering the building.
  • You should not visit if: you have signs of illness or if you have been in contact with someone who is sick. If you are immunocompromised, pregnant, or elderly you should talk to your doctor before visiting the hospital.
  • The café and waiting areas are open to visitors.
  • Hospital main lobby doors are locked from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. on weekdays and 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. on the weekend. During these hours visitors enter through the Emergency Department entrance.
  • No visitors are allowed while patients are in COVID-19 rule out status.
  • Patients with COVID-19 are allowed TWO visitors at a time for up to five hours. Visitors may not come and go.
    • We will give you PPE to wear while in the patient’s room. This will include a gown, gloves, and mask. You must keep these on while in the room.
