Patients and Families Temporary Visitation Policies

As a means to help minimize the spread of COVID-19, we have temporarily changed our visitation policy at UF Health hospitals and emergency rooms. Limiting visitors helps us reduce the risk of infection.

Masks are required at UF Health.

All patients and visitors must wear a Level 1 yellow medical ear loop mask. These masks will be provided upon entry to our facilities. If visitors have their own KN95 or N95 masks, they may wear those instead of the loop mask. Masks with exhalation valves are not permitted in UF Health facilities. Level 1 yellow masks are also available in our patient care areas for visitors.

Long Covid Treatment

The UF Health COVID RESTORE program provides short and long-term follow-up care for persons recovering from COVID-19. Individuals with what is commonly called “long COVID” typically experience a range of symptoms affecting different organs. These can continue for several months following the initial infection. Duration is unknown and varies from person to person, but improvement and resolution of some symptoms are observed.
