Boulder Community Health 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.

Due to respiratory virus season, please note the following:

  • Visitors under the age of 12 are not allowed in the inpatient units and surgery unless it is in the best interest of the patient.
    • This does not include outpatient services (ED, clinics, imaging, and lab).
  • Masking is required for visitors and staff during direct patient contact in patients with high risk medical conditions in the following areas:
    • Family Birth Center’s special care nursery
    • 1North oncology and outpatient infusion
    • 3East outpatient infusion
    • Other areas as directed by medical providers for patients with high risk, immune compromising conditions

Masking is optional in all other areas and BCH facilities not listed above. Please, if you are sick or have respiratory symptoms, wear a mask to protect the health of others. Respect the decisions of others. Know you have the right to ask your care team to wear a mask.

Please see other visitation guidelines below:

  • All visitors are expected to conduct a COVID-19 self-screen before entering the building.
