Visitor restrictions being implemented at Essentia Health clinics

Restrictions will impact Brainerd Lakes-area clinics

Essentia Health is taking more precautions to curb the spread of COVID-19 as we remain committed to protecting our patients and the communities we serve.

As of Wednesday, Oct. 20, clinic patients in the Brainerd Lakes area are being asked to attend appointments alone. One additional person is allowed with children, obstetric patients, and patients who require assistance. Anyone accompanying a patient is required to be healthy and at least 18 years of age.

It is recommended that children do not accompany adults to clinic appointments, however, we recognize this is not always possible.

This change will impact Essentia Health clinics in Baxter, Brainerd, Crosslake, Emily, Hackensack, Pequot Lakes, Pierz, Pillager and Pine River.
