Essentia Health is taking more precautions to curb the spread of COVID-19 as the health system remains committed to protecting patients and the communities served.

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 old.

It is recommended that children do not accompany adults to clinic appointments; however, they 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.
