MIDDLETOWN, Conn. — Middlesex Health will be loosening its visitor policy to allow one visitor at a time for patients.
This is due to the decrease in COVID-19 that Connecticut has seen in recent weeks.
This policy will go into effect across all Middlesex locations including Middlesex Hospital.
Patients who have respiratory precautions will not be allowed visitors unless they qualify for an exception.
All visitors must continue to wear face masks at all times throughout all areas of the buildings and will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms on arrival.
One visitor can accompany Middlesex Health's Emergency Department patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This goes for the pregnancy and birth center patients in addition to their primary support person.
