Effective today, visitation across Nuvance Health is being temporarily paused. This includes inpatient, emergency departments, medical practices and ambulatory services.  As COVID-19 cases are on the rise, Danbury and New Milford Hospitals are trying to limit the risk of possible exposure to the community.  Exceptions apply for patients under 21, maternity and NICU patients, those with disabilities and in end-of-life circumstances. Patients under age 21 are allowed a maximum of two designated and non-changing parents or support persons throughout the duration of the hospital stay so long as social-distancing and safe-occupancy standards allow. Pediatric patients may have siblings visit during hospital visitation hours, if deemed appropriate by the clinical care team. The children must stay within the patient’s room throughout the entire visit.
