HRMC expands hospital and clinic visitation

HURON — Huron Regional Medical Center has updated visitor restrictions to allow two visitors for hospital patients, HRMC Physicians Clinic and Women’s Wellness Center.

Due to the recent lower COVID-19 transmission rate in the community, some of the temporary restrictions implemented can be lifted at this time.

Visitors must be age 16 and older and in good health. No visitors are allowed in COVID care areas.

  • Outpatient Services & Clinic Visits: Two persons to accompany patient at time of service.
  • Inpatient Services:  Two visitors at a time
  • Birthing Center:  Two visitors per patient per day

All individuals entering HRMC facilities will continue to be screened for COVID-19 symptoms. They will be asked to follow all infection control guidelines, including proper hand hygiene, and asked to wear a mask. Patients, visitors and support persons may bring their own mask or may opt to wear one supplied by the the safe care screener. Individuals will also be encouraged to maintain six-foot social distances and not to unnecessarily linger in public spaces.
