Conemaugh Health eases restrictions
JOHNSTOWN — Conemaugh Health System has lifted its zero-visitor protocol to permit limited visitor restrictions.
Conemaugh Nason Memorial Hospital is part of the Conemaugh Health System.
The decision was made as current projections continue to indicate a lower than expected volume of COVID-19 cases in the region and after careful review of state and federal guidance. The updated restrictions, which now allow most patients to have one visitor or support person at a time, have been implemented effective immediately.
As part of the updated visitor restrictions, patients are now limited to one well visitor at a time, including one companion for outpatient appointments and one support person for obstetric patients. All visitors will be screened upon entry, they must provide their contact information, and are required to wear a mask for their duration of their visit and an armband while in the facility.
Visitors who do not pass the screening at entry will be asked to reschedule their visit until they are symptom-free. Visitors are not allowed for high-risk, isolation, immunocompromised or patients who are under observation or test positive for COVID-19.
