COVID-19: What You Should Know

We understand that people in our community are naturally concerned about COVID-19. Flagler Health+ has navigated through the COVID-19 pandemic together and we remain vigilant about ensuring the safety of our staff and patients. Even though more and more people in our area are receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, Flagler Health+ is following the CDC's guidance and still requires patients and visitors to wear a mask and practice social distancing at all locations.

Visitors

At Flagler Health+, we know that loved ones play a very important role in a patient’s recovery. It is also our responsibility to keep our patients, staff and visitors safe. To support this, an inter-professional team of physicians, infection prevention experts and leadership at Flagler Health+ has established a newly revised visitor policy appropriate for the current state of COVID-19 in our community. (updated 7.19.21)
