Some changes have been made to our Ochsner Health visitor policy. Major changes are noted below.
Emergency Departments and Urgent Care Locations: Emergency Room and Urgent Care patients will be limited to one visitor per patient through their stay.
COVID-19 Negative Minor patients: Patients are allowed to have two visitors per day, with one allowed 24/7.
Special Circumstances: Under the following circumstances visitor exceptions/extensions will be made to allow family members to be present 24 hours per day.
Based on feedback from our teams and due to the rise in local COVID-19 cases, we are taking measures to protect staff and visitors by modifying our visitor policy, effective tomorrow morning. Please review the Ochsner Health visitor policy in its entirety, however, the major changes are noted below:
Additionally, as our visitor policy becomes more restrictive it is critical that our clinical staff and providers have purposeful communication with patients’ family members who cannot be present. This can be done via telephone, or virtually. We want to ensure that we maintain our connection with patients and their families to provide excellent coordination and communication.

The following locations are temporarily closed until further notice:

Ochsner Health Modified Visitor Policy
In order to protect the health of our communities, and as a safety precaution to prevent the risk of spreading COVID-19, we have instituted visitor restrictions in accordance with recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In addition, some hospital access points will be consolidated on our campuses.
Ochsner is Ready to Provide the Care You Need.
Virtually online or in person, Ochsner is here to care for you and your family. If you have delayed scheduling an appointment due to COVID-19, now is the time to schedule. Your health is our priority. With new safety and screening measures in place, we are now scheduling appointments and procedures that are time-sensitive and were postponed by COVID-19.
Send Well Wishes to our Patients
We appreciate the outpouring of support, encouragement and well wishes to our patients by family, friends and our community. We are accepting community letters for our patients. The messages and cards received will be posted in a gallery on the Ochsner website for patients in and out of the hospital to view.
COVID-19 Testing Available
If you are experiencing mild or severe respiratory illness with fever, cough, difficulty breathing and risk of exposure to COVID-19, our staff are available to see you at our urgent care locations.
COVID-19 testing is available at all of our open urgent care locations.
