SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital Audrain is announcing that starting Monday, January 11th visitor restrictions will be relaxed.
According to news release from the hospital the change is due to a decrease in community transmission of the COVID-19 virus.
All non-COVID positive patients will be welcome to have one support person at a time, over the age of 16, during designated hours.
Exceptions may be made for end-of-life situations.
The support people will need to enter through the Emergency Room Entrance between 8 am and 8pm and undergo a screening, wear a face mask covering both nose and mouth, stay in the patient room or designated waiting area, and follow hand hygiene and social distancing guidelines.
