All Carilion Clinic facilities will return to pre-pandemic visitor policies as of Monday, May 23 with exceptions for COVID-19 patients.
Visitors will still be asked to mask and safety precautions like social distancing remain in place, according to a release from Carilion.
Visitors should not visit a patient if they are sick, have symptoms of COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone with known or suspected COVID-19 within the past 10 days, Carilion said.
Visitors for patients confirmed or suspected to have COVID-19 are still restricted to no visitors for adults with the exception of end-of-life care, medical necessity or patients in labor, and two parents or guardians for pediatric patients.
Carilion advises: “Please consider getting vaccinated and boosted to best protect yourself against COVID-19. If you are 50+ or immunocompromised, it is important to get your second booster to further extend protection. Visit vaccinate.virginia.gov to find a vaccine near you.”
