Management of Visitors to Healthcare Facilities in the Context of COVID-19: Non-US Healthcare Settings

This document provides guidance to healthcare facilities on the management of visitors to reduce the risk of transmission of SARS-CoV-2, also known as COVID-19 virus, to visitors of suspected or confirmed COVID-19 patients. This document also considers preventing introduction of COVID-19 into healthcare facilities by visitors during periods of community transmission; the risk of introduction into facilities increases as community transmission becomes more widespread. Facilities should establish policies and procedures for managing, screening, educating, and training all visitors.
