PORTLAND — To protect patients, staff, and the public, Legacy Health has issued strict visitor guidelines for all Legacy medical centers in Oregon and Washington, while COVID-19 is considered a public health threat.

The general public (anyone who is not accompanying a patient) is not allowed within the Legacy medical centers until further notice, including our cafeterias, waiting rooms, and indoor and outdoor meeting spaces.  There are a few exceptions to the COVID-19 visitor guidelines; people are encouraged to go to Legacyhealth.org for detailed information.

“It is important that we initiate these safeguards to protect our patients, staff and the public,” said Brian Terrett, director of public relations and community relations for Legacy Health.
