BINGHAMTON, NY – As New York State lifts most of its COVID restrictions, local hospitals and nursing homes are expanding their visitation procedures.
UHS and Lourdes put out a joint statement announcing that the hours for visiting patients in their hospitals will return to pre-pandemic times.
However, certain restrictions remain in place.
Visitors must wear masks, regardless of vaccination status.
And they will still be subject to a health screening upon entry.
Children under 12 are still not allowed.
And anyone experiencing possible coronavirus symptoms is asked not to come.
