Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center has implemented visitation restrictions for its emergency room in response to the increase in local COVID-19 cases.
Health officials say these new restrictions will take effect immediately.
ER visitors will be restricted as follows:
Adult patients (18 and older) are permitted no visitors.
Minors (under 18) are permitted one adult visitor.
Labor and Delivery patients are permitted one adult visitor.
Conemaugh officials add that exceptions to these restrictions will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
