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.
