Due to a decline in COVID-19 hospitalizations, Citrus Memorial Hospital will update its visitor policy beginning Wednesday, September 29.
The policy allows one visitor per patient from 9am-7pm, 7 days per week with exceptions for the Women and Baby Center, COVID-19 patients and end-of-life situations.
The modified policy is as follows:
One visitor per patient is permitted with the following exceptions:
- Women and Baby Center: Two visitors are allowed and one may stay overnight post-partum.
- Coronavirus (COVID-19) Units: For the protection of our patients, visitors, and caregivers, we do not allow visitors to visit COVID-19 patients; nor do we allow visitors to visit those undergoing investigation for COVID-19.
- End of Life: Exceptions can be made for end of life situations; they must be approved by the hospital Administrator on Call (AOC) or administration.
Anyone under the age of 18 will not be considered for visitation unless they are the parent of a hospitalized child.
Circumstances may allow for specific exceptions to any visitation restrictions described on this webpage. Those circumstances include religious visitation as well as a designated support person for a patient with a disability to provide assistance with communication or other necessary components of the patient's treatment. All persons entering under an exception remain subject to appropriate infection control protocols.
