Fauquier Health implements no visitation policy
Fauquier Health has implemented a no visitation policy at the hospital due to the documented increase in COVID-19 cases in the region.
The new policy became effective Dec. 11 and will remain in place until further notice.
Some exceptions may apply such as pediatric care, obstetric patients and those receiving end-of-life care.
Elective, urgent/emergent, and other scheduled procedures are not impacted and will continue as scheduled. All Physician Services Clinics and off-campus locations (Sleep Center, Wellness Center, and Wound Healing Center) are in operation.
Fauquier Health reminds the public to do their part to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by practicing social distancing, avoiding large gatherings, washing hands regularly, and wearing a mask or face covering while in public.
For additional information and for the latest updates about the hospital’s preparation and response to COVID-19, visit the Coronavirus Preparedness page. Updates are posted on Fauquier Health’s Facebook page as well.
