Cody Regional Health will implement Visitation Restrictions

CODY, WY (March 18, 2020) – Cody Regional Health is making every effort to keep our
patients and staff safe. We would like to make sure that we are following the CDC
recommendations for social distancing and decreasing the size of groupings. Therefore, we will be
temporarily suspending all visitation in the hospital at 6 pm Wednesday, March 18, 2020. This
will include all hospital spaces and the Emergency Department.


Pediatric patients admitted to the Emergency Room or Inpatient Services will be allowed one
legal caregiver with them for the entirety of their stay and may not be rotated as this would
increase the number of exposure opportunities to staff and the caregiver.


Maternity patients will be allowed one birth partner to remain with them for the entirety of their
stay, and the caregiver cannot be rotated. The newborn will not count as a pediatric patient that
can receive their own caregiver.


We would like to encourage the chosen caregiver to limit their movement throughout the
community if they must leave the facility and need to come back. We would encourage the
practice of self-quarantining as long as the CDC recommends the practice.


All of these actions are for the health and safety of patients, visitors and staff and a precautionary
step. For further information about COVID-19, please call 307-527-1870 or visit
