In an email from Valley Health (VH) Public Relations Manager Carol Weare it was announced that visitation to VH Hospitals has gone from level red to level yellow as of today Mon. Mar. 14.
This is due largely to the recent decrease in COVID-19 cases and admissions.
Two of a patient’s care partners can now stay at the bedside of adults in surgical or critical care units.
The exception is when a patient is confirmed or suspected of having COVID-19 then only one care partner is allowed.
In labor or delivery units a third person is allowed for a baby’s delivery.
All care partners must be at least 18 years of age and designated by the patient.
All care partners must also follow all VH health and safety guidelines.
A complete definition of Level Yellow status is found at valleyhealthlink.com.
