RICHMOND — Reid Health says it will lift many of it’s visitor restrictions related to COVID-19 next week.
On Monday, April 4, the limit on the number of visitors for patients at the hospital will be removed, with the exception to the emergency department and COVID-positive patients.
For the emergency department, the hospital’s pre-pandemic rule of no more than two visitors will be reimplemented. As for COVID-positive patients, some visitation restrictions will exist for those who have or are suspected to have COVID-19.
In a release, officials said that visitors will continue to be screened for COVID-19 symptoms and will still be required to wear a mask.
Hospital officials said the changes to the restrictions was due to the spread of COVID-19 reaching a low point.
“Cases are low now, but to ensure they remain so, we need as many people as possible to do their part,” Craig Kinyon, Reid Health President/CEO, said.
