Boulder Community Health knows how important visitors are to a patient’s wellbeing. We are also committed to keeping our patients and staff safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Below are some guidelines to help keep us all safe. If you have any questions, please let the BCH staff know.

All visitors must wear a mask at all times. Visitors must adhere to capacity limits in all public spaces and waiting areas.

  • Surgical patients may have ONE adult companion at a time and ONE companion may remain in the waiting room while the patient is having their procedure.
  • Emergency Department patients may have ONE adult visitor at a time.
  • Outpatient infusion patients may have ONE companion during treatment.
  • Mom and Baby may have ONE visitor each day (avoid quiet time 2 – 4pm).
  • Labor and Delivery will continue to allow TWO labor support people during labor and delivery.
  • In the Special Care Nursery, TWO parents are allowed.
  • Hospitalized patients may have ONE adult visitor at a time with exception to patients with COVID-19
    (see below).
  • Visitors may come and go.
  • All visitors are expected to conduct a COVID-19 self-screen prior to entering the building.
  • You should not visit if: you have signs of illness or have been in contact with someone who is sick, or you are under the age of 16. If you are immunocompromised, pregnant, or elderly you should talk to your doctor before visiting the hospital.
  • The café is closed to visitors. You may bring your own food or when you get to the hospital, you can stop at the coffee kiosk to pick something up or order from the in-room menu.
  • Patients with COVID-19 are allowed ONE visitor at a time for a one-hour period for each visitor.
    • 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.
    • Your personal belongings must stay outside the room. We will keep them in a secure place for you. You will be allowed to keep your phone or tablet with you.
    • Staff may ask you to step outside of the room to keep you safe during certain procedures. You will be told when you can return.
