In light of the sharp decrease in COVID-19 cases tracked by local health departments, UR Medicine Thompson Health announced that effective today, March 9, hospital visiting hours will return to the pre-pandemic hours of 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
Two visitors per day will be permitted at a patient’s bedside and patients in the intensive care unit may now have one visitor overnight. These visitors must be 18 years of age or older.
All visitors will still need to be screened for symptoms of illness upon entry to the hospital, and information will still be collected for contact tracing purposes.
Visitor restrictions will still be in place for hospitalized patients who test positive for COVID-19.
There are no changes at this time to outpatient visitor guidelines. Each patient at an outpatient appointment may be accompanied by one support person.
