A Minot-based medical provider is tightening its visitation policy in response to surging COVID-19 cases in Ward County.

A press release sent to KX News identified the following exceptions to the no-visitor policy:

  • Pediatric clinic – limit one parent or guardian
  • OB/GYN clinic – limit one asymptomatic adult visitor to accompany patient with lifting restrictions
  • Home caregiver – limit one caregiver who must remain in room for duration of training/education
  • Surgical patient – limit one support person before and immediately after procedure
  • Wheelchair transport – limit one caregiver for transport
  • Power of Attorney – limit one documented POA
  • Minor patient – limit one parent or guardian
  • CancerCare Center – limit one asymptomatic adult with each patient

“Visitors who do meet an exception criterion must be an adult who is asymptomatic,” the health care provider notes.
