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, regardless of vaccination status.

This includes while in the patient room as well as all public areas.

  • Pre-op patients may have TWO adult visitors per day. The visitors must leave the hospital while the patient is having their procedure.
  • Emergency Department patients may have ONE adult visitor per day.
  • Outpatient infusion patients may have TWO companions during treatment.
  • Mom and Baby may have TWO visitors between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. each day (avoid quiet time 2 – 4 p.m.).
  • Labor & 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 TWO adult visitors per day with exception to patients with COVID-19 (see below). These visitors may arrive any time between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. and stay until 10 p.m. Visitors may come and go as needed.
  • 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.
  • Visitors must always stay in the patient’s room. If the visitors need something, please use the call bell to tell the nurse, just as the patient would.
  • 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.
  • All visitors must wear a mask at all times. Visitors must adhere to capacity limits in all public spaces and waiting areas.
  • Patients with COVID-19 are allowed ONE visitor at a time for a one-hour period for each visitor.
    • No visitors are allowed while in COVID-19 rule out status.
    • 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.
