Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: Visiting & Staying
Limitation on accompanying person
In order to thoroughly prevent infection, only ONE adult caregiver is allowed per outpatient. Please refrain from accompanying siblings of the patient.
Temperature measurement for outpatients and their caregivers
We are measuring the body temperature of patients and their caregivers before
they enter the hospital to prevent the spread of infection.
Visitors can have their temperature measured at the hospital’s west entrance between 7:30 AM and 5 PM. The north entrance has been closed since April 8.
Visitors to the outpatient department are required to wear a mask.
If your body temperature is below 37.5 degrees Celsius and you do not have any symptoms of infection, we will give you a “temperature-checked” sticker to wear on the left side of your chest where it can be seen easily.
Please let us know in advance if any of the following conditions applies to you, as you may not be permitted to see a doctor.
- You have had close contact with a person with a confirmed or suspected novel coronavirus infection.
- You have traveled to or been in a foreign country within 14 days prior to your visit to our hospital.
You have cold-like symptoms, a body temperature higher than 37.5 degrees
Celsius or feel weak.
(Including persons who are required to continue taking anti-fever drugs.)
If you leave the hospital, you will need to have your temperature taken again
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
