COLUMBIA, S.C. — Lexington Medical Center is making some changes to their visitation policy and that should make some happy.
Effective March 2, two visitors will be allowed to visit inpatients on non-COVID units between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
For obstetrics patients, one support person is allowed during labor and right after delivery. Two visitors, not including the support person, are allowed to visit the patient on the Mother/Baby unit between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
The hospital had put restrictive changes in place mid-January citing the rising number of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in South Carolina.
While the visitation policy is not back to pre-coronavirus status, it does allow more to visit.
