The Hospital Clínic is reversing its policy and changing the rules regarding visits to relatives in hospital

Due to the current epidemiological situation and the increase in the number of positive cases of COVID-19 across Catalonia, and in the city of Barcelona in particular, the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona has decided to reinstate the rules it had applied up to the end of May 2021 regarding visits to relatives admitted to non-COVID units of the hospital. This measure will be applied starting today, and in a week’s time it will be reassessed in order to see whether it needs to be revised.

1 visitor, who must always be the same.

Visits are only advised in cases when it is strictly essential, and each patient can only have 1 visitor, who must always be the same. They can visit for 1 hour a day.

Moreover, while you are in the hospital, you are asked to respect the minimum social distance (1.5 m), both with the staff and other visitors, to wear a mask, and clean your hands frequently with alcohol gel both on entering and leaving rooms.   Under no circumstances may you enter the room without the permission of the nursing staff.

Remember that visits are not allowed if you have any symptoms compatible with COVID-19 and that you must wear a mask at all times, practise social distancing and clean your hands frequently with soap and water or alcohol hand gels.

If you have a temperature of over 37.5ºC, a dry cough, diarrhoea, muscle pain, a headache and/or sore throat, or loss of taste and/or smell, do not go to the hospital, and please contact the appropriate primary healthcare centre (CAP).
