IU Health restricts visitors


IU Health has taken steps to minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection in its facilities. The hospital again put guidelines in place restricting visitors to the IU Health hospitals and facilities.

There are some exceptions to the guidelines, such as one visitor being allowed for pediatrics, OB/delivery, the emergency department on a case-by-case basis, outpatient and inpatient surgery, patient caretaker in-person education and at the time of admission for a patient being admitted to the hospital. Approved visitors must screen negative for COVID-19 and will be provided a mask, which must be worn at all times. Two visitors will be allowed for the neo-natal intensive care unit and in end-of-life situations.

Outpatient and clinic patients are encouraged to come to their appointment by themselves, and they will be screened for COVID-19. If the patient doesn’t pass the screening, they may be asked to reschedule their appointment.
