To protect the health and safety of patients and team members, the following restrictions remain in place:
- Masks are required at all Henry Ford facilities for team members, patients and visitors ages 5 and older including those who have received the COVID-19 vaccination. Any visitor who refuses to wear a mask is not permitted to enter the facility. Masks also protect patients with comorbidities who may not yet be vaccinated.
- All team members, patients and visitors are screened for COVID-19 before entry to Henry Ford facilities, which includes a temperature check. Anyone who fails the screen will not be allowed to visit.
- All visitors should remain with the patient except for quick trips to the bathroom or to purchase food.
- All visitors should refrain from eating or drinking in the patient’s room or sharing their restroom.
- Henry Ford strongly discourages visitors who are at high risk of developing severe complications from COVID-19, including older adults and persons with underlying medical conditions.
