As part of the overall plan, St. Anthony Regional Hospital is limiting visitors. We specifically ask that any person experiencing identified symptoms (cough, fever, shortness of breath), those who have been exposed to anyone with symptoms, and those who have traveled to areas impacted by COVID-19, or participated in an international cruise, not to visit St. Anthony Regional Hospital, Nursing Home, Garden View or Orchard View.
