Watertown Regional Medical Center Eases Visitor Restrictions

(Watertown) Watertown Regional Medical Center (WRMC) has eased their visitor restrictions. The facility has transitioned from a zero-visitor protocol to limited visitor restrictions. With the change, most patients will be allowed one healthy support person at the hospital. Patients will also be allowed to bring a guest with them to outpatient services including clinic visits and urgent care, radiology, lab and therapy appointments. Coronavirus positive patients will not be allowed visitors at this time. Inpatients are allowed one support person per day with visitor hours ending at 8pm. Each guest must be 18-years or older and will be screened for COVID-19 prior to entering. Masks will be required. WRMC CEO Richard Keddington says their top priority is safeguarding the health and wellbeing of their patients, providers, employees and community. He says they feel confident it is safe to begin allowing limited visitors again.
