KETTERING — Due to the continued decrease in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, Kettering Health is updating its visitor policy across the system. Effective Wednesday, March 16 at 8 a.m., Kettering Health will resume regular, pre-pandemic visitor guidelines for all emergency departments and hospital units.

Patients suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19 may have one visitor, age 12 and older, by appointment only.

Guests visiting behavioral health and outpatient locations are encouraged to check the visitor policy with individual providers or facilities.

Masking will continue to be required for visitors and employees in all clinical care buildings (hospitals, clinics, physician offices, therapy offices, etc.).
