Several hospitals in Central-Illinois will further restrict visitors; many effective (today Monday 11/23) in order to protect patients and ensure healthcare professionals can continue to safely offer all services. It’s an ongoing effort to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus and protect patients and healthcare professionals. Most inpatients, with some limited exceptions, will no longer be allowed to have visitors.
So many hospitals are issuing news releases. We suggest you call ahead to your hospital facility with questions about restrictions.
Everyone who enters the hospital must wear a face covering that covers the nose and mouth at all times while in the hospital. Visitors will be screened upon entry to the hospital. Children under 16 are not allowed.
