  • In emergent situations, there is a 72 hour grace period during which the visitor is exempt from the vaccination and testing requirements, however the visitor must comply with the requirements as soon as reasonably possible.
  • Family Birth Center birth coach/partners may conduct a supervised antigen test on site.
