Nuvance Health is making some changes to visitation policies at their hospitals as the number of COVID-19 cases in the community continues to decline. Nuvance is also moving the Danbury Hospital COVID-19 vaccine clinic out of the hospital to the mass vaccination site at the Danbury Mall. Starting today, Danbury Hospital in-patients without suspected or confirmed COVID disease will be allowed one support person at the hospital. The duration of visits may not exceed four hours during visitation hours. Patients in the ER or those with suspected or confirmed COVID disease will not be permitted a support person unless the patient is under age 21, a maternity patient or if extenuating circumstances apply. Last week, New Milford Hospital, Norwalk Hospital, Sharon Hospital and Putnam Hospital all made this change. To ensure a healthy and safe environment for patients, staff, and visitors during the COVID-19 pandemic, Nuvance Health has implemented various visitation policy.
