WGH to end visitations amid increase in COVID cases

There were three more Warren County cases of COVID-19 announced by the Pennsylvania Department of Health on Friday.

“Out of an abundance of caution due to increased COVID-19 activity in the Warren County area and across the region … effective Monday, Nov. 16, Warren General Hospital will no longer allow visitors,” Executive Director of Operations Kathryn Carlson said.

There are some exceptions:

• one support person will be allowed with surgical patients;

• one support person will be allowed with emergency room patients;

• one parent or guardian will be allowed with a minor child;

• one support person will be allowed with laboring mothers;

• end-of-life patients may have visitors as permitted by their attending physician; and

• Warren Medical Group, RehabWorks, and Wound Care patients are permitted to have one healthy person accompany them to their appointments.

A support person must be 18 years of age or older.
