COVID-19 Precautions

As always, BHSH is committed to protecting our patients and staff. In addition to the screening procedures outlined below, and in accordance with CDC guidelines, we are requiring that our staff wear masks at all times. We are also requiring that all patients wear masks during the duration of their stay. If you are able to bring your own mask, it would be greatly appreciated. Masks should be functional, clean, and free of holes and tears. If you do not have a mask, we are happy to provide one for you. We also ask that everyone practice social distancing to the extent that is practical.

SCREENING PRIOR TO ENTERING:
Prior to being allowed into our facilities, screening of all individuals will be conducted at the main entrances of Black Hills Surgical Hospital and Black Hills Imaging Center. This includes patients, staff, contractors, and vendors. Screening includes checking for fever and other symptoms.
