Northern Arizona Healthcare is going into limited visitation guidelines as COVID-19 community levels increase to medium spread. The guidelines go into effect Tuesday morning at 10 a.m. at all NAH health care facilities. Visitors will be asked to follow certain requirements to help protect the health and safety of all other visitors, patients, and NAH staff. Visitors must continue to follow certain requirements including wearing a surgical mask at all times, checking in with attendants before proceeding to a patient’s room and wearing a visitor identification badge. Visitors who do not have an approved mask will be provided one at the entrance. As of Friday, Coconino County is at 6.7-percent staffed of inpatient beds by COVID-19 patients per 100-thousand people. New cases per 100-thousand people is 8.4. Both are in the medium levels. However, new cases in Flagstaff topped out back on June 4th, and has seen a decline over the last two weeks. As of Friday morning, there were 16 COVID positive patients, with one pending, at Flagstaff Medical Center, eight COVID patients at Verde Valley Medical Center. NAH officials say the change is necessary to ensure the highest quality care within the safest environment for patients and staff.
