Holy Rosary Healthcare has made quick and drastic changes to protect their patients and staff from the coronavirus.

Those changes include visitor restrictions.

No visitors are allowed in the hospital. They are also not allowing clinical or medical students along with community members, said a press release.

The exception for community members is if they have a medical need within the building.

If individuals have family or loved ones within the hospital at the beginning or end of their life they can call 406-233-2600 for more information.

According to a press release, if a person is feeling unwell they should take the following into consideration.

— If you are sick and have mild symptoms, stay home and self-isolate as much as possible.

— If you are sick enough that you would normally go to the doctor, call ahead to your care provider for instructions.

— To avoid spreading respiratory illnesses, please do not show up at a clinic or hospital without calling 406-233-2600 in advance for instructions.

“We are working closely with our partners at One-Health and the Montana Department of Health and Human Services for up to date information and processes,” said Karen Costello, Holy Rosary President in a press release.
