 Arizona, California, Nebraska & Nevada

To create a safe and secure environment for our patients and our health care workers during the COVID-19 outbreak, visitors will not be allowed in Banner Health facilities in Arizona, California, Nebraska and Nevada. This applies to hospitals as well as outpatient locations.

There are four exceptions to the visitor restrictions:

  • Pediatric patients (under the age of 18) may have one guardian or support individual with them.
  • Laboring mothers may have one support person with them.
  • Persons with disabilities who, due to the specifics of the disability, require assistance from someone in order to effectively participate in the health care process will be allowed to designate a support person to accompany them while in any Banner facility.
  • End of life visitations lasting up to 60 minutes will be accommodated. The caregiver of your hospitalized loved one will provide you with more details about this process.

Anyone who qualifies for one of these exceptions and enters a Banner Health facility is subject to a health screening to ensure they are not exhibiting symptoms of respiratory illness. In addition, they must have their own mask which should be worn at all times while inside Banner facilities. Those who do not comply will be asked to leave the facility.

We understand this will be challenging, but we’re committed to take the necessary steps to protect you, your family, our health care workers and the community.

We continue to encourage virtual visits as the primary way to connect with your hospitalized loved ones.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
