Beginning Thursday, August 5, Sarah Bush Lincoln will limit patients to one designated support person. Patients may have one support person with them when receiving any services, including during hospitalizations, surgeries, clinic visits and during diagnostic testing, lab work and rehabilitation. However, patients who have COVID-19 will not be allowed any visitors.
Visitors must be at least 16 years old and remain masked throughout their visit to any SBL facility, including when in patient rooms. Face masks are provided at the entrances.
Sarah Bush Lincoln will continue to take steps to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, especially as the positivity rate in the area increases. Visitors are requested not to enter any SBL facilities if they are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms such as a cough, fever, sore throat, or nausea.
The Pfizer vaccine is available to anyone age 12 and older at the SBL Charleston Walk-In Clinic, 2040 Lincoln Avenue, and Mattoon Walk-In Clinic, 200 Dettro Drive. No appointment is necessary. People can continue to go to the Mattoon Walk-In Clinic for COVID-19 testing.
