Information for Professionals

For the protection of our patients, staff and community, UHD is currently restricting visitors as follows:

  • Hospital and Emergency Room Patients – NO VISITORS AT THIS TIME
  • Obstetric Patients – One continuous support person for the duration of the hospital stay.

Face Masks at UHD

Updated September 2, 2021

Please note that face masks are required at UHD Hospital and Clinics.

Because the Delta variant is shown to spread more easily, the Minnesota Dept. of Health and Centers for Disease Control recommend everyone, both fully vaccinated and unvaccinated, wear a mask in settings that pose a high risk of COVID-19 spread or complications from COVID-19 infection, including healthcare settings.

UHD will continue to follow guidance closely and update our policies as necessary. Thank you for helping UHD continue to provide a safe environment for our patients, visitors and staff.
