Focus on Your Safety

UF Health Leesburg Hospital adheres to a number of measures designed to protect our patients, visitors and staff. Thank you for placing your trust in us to meet your health care needs.

Hospital visiting hours are from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. To protect the health of our patients and health care providers, only two visitors per patient — one visitor at a time — are allowed for the duration of the patient’s stay. Visitors will be screened upon entry. No one under the age of 18 is permitted to visit at this time. All visitors will be screened; those who are determined to be a potential risk will be turned away. Visitors are expected to follow verbal and/or posted instructions such as signs that indicate No Visitors or Isolation.

Out of abundance of caution, a masking policy is in place that requires everyone who enters a UF Health facility to wear a mask. All visitors will be issued a surgical mask when entering the building and the mask should be worn at all times. This added precaution ensures all individuals in our hospital facilities are masked even in common areas.

A hospital staff will continue to adhere to best practice public health guidelines as set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Florida Department of Health, including mandatory masking, enhanced hand hygiene and physical distancing.

Proper Masking

Visitors at UF Health Leesburg Hospital are NOT permitted to wear any mask with an exhalation valve, regardless of whether a filter is present, unless a second ear loop or surgical mask is worn and completely covers the valve part of the mask. Visit CDC.gov/coronavirus to see the latest guidelines related to the use of exhalation valve masks.
