Visitor Guidelines

As of August 31, 2021, visitor guidelines at our locations across Wisconsin and Upper Michigan allow two adult visitors or support people at a time, per patient.

This applies across all patient care settings with the following exceptions:

  • Assisted Living Facilities/Nursing Homes – Aspirus locations will follow the state regulations for visitation. Visitors and families are advised to call the facility directly to discuss.
  • Compassionate care – Exceptions can be made to allow additional visitors at the discretion of the care team during end-of-life, labor and delivery, and disability situations.
  • COVID-19 patients – Visitors not permitted with exceptions considered for pediatric patients and end-of-life situations.
  • Emergency Departments – One adult visitor/support person per adult patient; two per pediatric patient.
  • Pediatric patients – Patient siblings are not allowed.

All approved visitors will be required to wear a facemask, socially distance and be screened upon entering Aspirus facilities.

Hospital visitor hours are generally defined as 8 am-6 pm unless exceptions are made for compassionate care.

Aspirus will continually monitor COVID-19 activity, vaccination rates and the latest guidance from public health for any future considerations related to visitors.

Aspirus appreciates the continued cooperation of its visitors, patients, associates and providers to support infection control efforts and help minimize the spread of respiratory infections and COVID-19. All community members are encouraged to get vaccinated as the best way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 and its variants. Vaccination appointments can be made through the MyAspirus app or online patient portal, or by calling the Aspirus COVID-19 Call Center at 1-844-568-0701.
