UnityPoint Health Hospitals update visitor restrictions

WATERLOO – UnityPoint Health – Allen Hospital, Community Memorial Hospital and Grundy County Memorial Hospital are further restricting hospital visitors, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Beginning 7 a.m. Tuesday, March 17, all routine visiting at the hospitals has been suspended until the transmission of COVID-19 is no longer a threat to our patients, staff and community. Allen Hospital is closing entrances 1, 3, 5, 6 and 9 to the public. That means Entrances 2 (off West Dale St.), 4 (emergency department) and 8 (outpatient registration off Donald St.) will remain open. All patients and visitors at those locations will be given a health screening and issued a temporary badge upon entry to the facility.
