Edgerton Hospital Eases Visitor Guidelines   

As positive cases of COVID-19 and related hospitalizations continue to trend downward, Edgerton Hospital has eased its visitor guidelines effective Monday, March 1st. The updated guidelines are as follows:

  • All outpatients - 1 visitor may accompany to appointments/procedures.
  • All inpatients - 1 visitor during the patient’s stay. This visitor must remain the same person for the entire admission.
  • If COVID-19 is suspected or confirmed – no visitors

Screening protocol for all visitors will remain the same, as outlined here.

In addition to easing its visitor guidelines, Edgerton Hospital continues to keep a vaccine waiting list for eligible individuals. As of March 1, 2021, newly eligible groups include educators and child care, individuals enrolled in Medicaid long-term care programs, some public-facing essential workers, non-frontline essential health care personnel, and facility staff and residents in congregate living settings.

Due to limited supply of vaccine, Edgerton Hospital will continue to prioritize the 65+ population, the frontline healthcare workers, police, fire, EMS and other first responders. We look forward to vaccinating other eligible groups as quickly as we can once supply becomes available.
