Republic County Hospital is currently engaging in a "No Visitor Policy."
This means that our doors are closed to everyone except hospital staff and patients with appointments.
At Republic County Hospital, every person who enters the facility is undergoing a screening process.
Questions about travel history are necessary questions being asked. It is critical that as a patient you are providing us with accurate and truthful information.
We ask that you consider tracking your travel history on a calendar. This will help you recall where you've been and how long ago it occurred. If at all possible, please bring this calendar with you to your appointment.
People tend to forget their travel history, or dismiss it as unimportant. During our current circumstances, your travel information is vital.
When we are aware of your travel history:
*It does NOT mean that you will not be allowed in the building.
*It does mean that our staff has the opportunity to use proper Personal Protective Equipment.
*It does mean we can more appropriately care for you.
*It does mean that we can perform the proper tests to get a correct diagnosis.
*It does help keep you and your community safe.
As part of an ongoing effort to limit the spread of COVID-19 in the state of Kansas, Governor Kelly has issued a temporary STAY AT HOME order from March 30th until April 19th.
However, your complete travel history is still necessary. Before visiting Republic County Hospital please ask yourselves the following questions: Where have I been? Who has been to see me?
