Tomah Health continues to work with Wisconsin and Monroe County Public Health Dept., and Region 4 Healthcare Emergency Readiness Coalition (HERC) in response to COVID-19.

Mildly ill patients are encouraged to stay home and contact their healthcare provider by phone for guidance about clinical management. Patients who have severe symptoms, such as difficulty breathing, should seek care immediately.

 

VISITOR RESTRICTIONS (EFFECTIVE OCT 10, 2022)

  • No Visitors for patients who test positive for COVID.
  • Visitors and patients will continue to be screened and required to wear a mask if they have a recent (last 14 days) known exposure to COVID or signs and symptoms of COVID.

    (Visitors and patients without these criteria will not be required to mask.)

We understand that restrictions have been difficult on our patients, their families and our staff, but truly appreciate all the cooperation, which has enabled us to continue providing safe, quality care.

Vaccine Safety

The United States currently has the safest vaccine supply in its history. The nation’s long-standing vaccine safety system ensures that vaccines are as safe as possible.

Vaccine Safety is a vital part of the nation’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As vaccines are developed and become available, the public’s knowledge of their safety, both initially and during extended use, is an important part of a successful national vaccination effort.

Public Action

We remind area residents to use good health hygiene including…

  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

“Although we haven’t adopted a formal written policy, hospital administration and the board of directors have adopted the requirement that all patients must wear a mask for the entire time they’re in the building. This practice is based on recommendations from the CDC and the State Department of Health, and is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. If you refuse to comply with this requirement, you’re free to seek out other options for your healthcare.”
