Southwest General Visitor Restrictions

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, the health and safety of our patients, visitors and staff remains our top priority.

Moving forward, Southwest General will use the four-color statewide visitation levels—blue, yellow, orange and red—to help minimize the spread of COVID-19 throughout our facilities. The visitation levels are based on public health data about the spread of COVID-19, including state and county public health information.
