COVID-19 Report - 11/12/21
November 12, 2021
At Northeastern Nevada Regional Hospital, our top priority continues to be protecting the health and safety of our patients, providers, employees, and community.
We are pleased to report that our COVID-19 statistics have now been consistently declining for a month. This week’s number of new COVID-positive admissions – nine – is the lowest we’ve seen since August. Thanks to this trend, we have moved to the lowest level of our patient surge plan: Phase Green. As a result, we are happy to announce that all hospital patients may now receive one healthy visitor per day. Visiting hours for inpatients will be between 10:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. daily. Before arriving to visit a patient, please read our entire visitor policy at www.NNRHospital.com/visitors.
While we remain in Phase Green, we will discontinue these weekly reports to the community. It is our sincere hope that COVID-19 cases will keep decreasing throughout our region. However, please note that there were four COVID-positive patients who passed away at our facility this week. Our thoughts and prayers are with the loved ones of these individuals. Their passing is a somber reminder that COVID-19 is still something to be taken very seriously.
We continue to ask our neighbors to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Please do your part by wearing a mask in public, maintaining physical distancing, practicing good hand hygiene, and – above all – getting vaccinated. Find a list of nearby vaccination sites at www.Vaccines.gov.
As always, if you or a family member require medical attention, please do not hesitate to come to the hospital for care. Our facility is clean and safe, and you will be seen by a qualified provider. If you are experiencing an emergency of any kind, please call 9-1-1 immediately.
