Visitor Policy and Screening

Lakewood is screening all employees, patients and visitors prior to entry into our facilities. We are also restricting visitors. Please see below for details.

Patient and Visitor Screening
Per Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) requirements, Lakewood is screening patients, visitors and staff at all building entrances. All visitors must pass screening to proceed into the building. Any patients who don’t pass screening can either leave the building or be seen in our Quick Care clinic. Everyone who enters is expected to wear a mask for the duration of their time in the building. Screening consists of answering whether you have any symptoms of COVID, exposure to COVID, or signs of a fever.

Please be honest about the answers you give during the screening process as this allows us to provide the best, safest care to all our patients.
