HUNTINGTON — With spread of COVID-19 high in the Tri-State, Mountain Health Network hospitals in Huntington are revising their visitor policies once again.
Beginning Tuesday, Sept. 29, adult inpatients who are admitted to a Mountain Health facility (Cabell Huntington Hospital or St. Mary’s Medical Center) may designate one primary and one alternate visitor who may visit the patient during their stay. Only one of these designated visitors can be in the building each day during the hours of noon to 6 p.m. and during discharge instructions.
The visitor may only leave the patient room to go to the cafeteria or to meet food delivery personnel in the lobby. Once a visitor exits the building, they will not be allowed to return until the next day.
No visitors will be permitted for anyone in isolation for suspected or confirmed COVID-19.
