Visiting loved ones at Vidant.

Thank you for trusting Vidant Health to care for you and your loved ones. The safety of our patients, visitors and team members is our top priority. Per Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services guidance, Vidant will continue to operate under the existing COVID-19 guidelines, including mandatory screening and masking for team members and visitors, regardless of vaccination status.

As Vidant continues to monitor and respond to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic across North Carolina, we are taking steps to ensure the safety of all. Vidant remains vigilant with its screening process for all visitors, entry requirements and visitor restrictions by department. This is an evolving situation and Vidant continues to closely monitor local data, including COVID-19 cases in our region and in our hospitals, and will adjust visitation restrictions accordingly.

In following the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) guidelines, visitors who need assistance due to a disability may have an additional individual with them when visiting a loved one in a Vidant Health facility to help navigate the current visitor guidelines.

Vidant strongly encourages visitors to consider virtual visitation options such as FaceTime and phone calls. Assistance with virtual visits, including iPads for patients without the necessary technology, is available on request. Virtual visitation is the safest way to stay connected with a loved one.
