Visitor Policy Sheltering Arms Institute is committed to protecting our patients, team members and the community from COVID-19. We have implemented the following visitor policy in accordance with guidelines set forth by the CDC and Virginia Department of Health. Due to the increases in COVID-19 cases, positivity rates and transmission risks across Virginia, the visitation policy is being changed to protect patient safety. Beginning on January 1, 2021, SAI will not allow visitors onsite for any patient over the age of 18. Adolescent patients will be permitted to have one parent present to participate in their care.
