Cuyuna Regional Medical Center adds visitor restrictions

No visitors allowed in most circumstances


Because the Crow Wing County COVID positivity rate is 12.4 percent, Cuyuna Regional Medical Center is now restricting visitors and limiting access to its facilities for at least two weeks to protect its patients, residents, and staff.

No visitors are being allowed in the clinics, surgery, obstetrics, emergency room, or hospital. The only exception is for instances of compassionate care and those must be arranged. CRMC continues to allow one support individual/guardian for minors, people who require extensive mobility support, and those needing support due to memory loss or impaired decision making. Patients meeting one of these exceptions, please communicate this at the time of scheduling. Everyone entering a facility will be required to wear a mask.
