Instructions for visitors

Visits by family members of patients and other visits to HUS units are restricted due to the risk of coronavirus infection. Visitor restrictions have been updated as of November 14, 2022.

Visits to our units are allowed under the following conditions

  • Visitors must wear a disposable face mask, which the unit will provide as needed   
  • Visitors must use hand disinfectant when they enter and leave the hospital, ward, or patient room   
  • Visitors must be free of any symptoms of a respiratory infection and must not have been exposed to the coronavirus in the past 5 days  

If necessary, the staff may give additional instructions regarding visits, and visitors must follow these instructions.  

To accompany a patient to a scheduled appointment, you must not have any symptoms of a coronavirus infection and must wear a surgical face mask throughout your stay in the hospital. 

Children's units and obstetric and maternity units 

Pediatric wards and Gynecology and Obstetrics  have separate instructions on visitation for family members of patients.  

Delivering items to patients 

If you bring items to the hospital info desk to be delivered to a patient, please observe the opening hours of the info desk. Do not bring items near closing time, because the ward personnel may not make it in time to pick up the items and we cannot guarantee safe storage.
