Dayton, Ohio – Policies are changing as the number of COVID-19 cases, as well as hospitalizations, continues to fall. Premier Health said on Friday, February 25, that it is going to start up regular visitation rules for all patients who haven’t been diagnosed with COVID-19 right away.
According to Premier Health, despite the fact that the number of visitors allowed has returned to normal, visitors are still required to wear masks.
A single visitor is now allowed at a time for hospitalized people who have been diagnosed with COVID-19. Patients in labor who test positive are allowed two visits at a time, and infants in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) are allowed two visitors at a time.
Those rules and procedures apply to all Premier Health hospitals, like the Atrium Medical Center. They also apply to Miami Valley Hospital North, Miami Valley Hospital South, the Upper Valley Medical Center, and the Upper Valley Medical Center.
