Some Upstate Hospitals Reinstate Visitation with Strict Guidlines
Catskills Hatzalah has announced that the emergency room at both the Harris hospital and Ellenville hospital are reinstating visitation effective today.
They have specified guidelines such as screenings, allowing only one visitor per patient, age 18 and up, and wearing a mask during duration of the visit.
they are also working on getting Orange Regional hospital to start allowing visitation, but have announced any expected date as of yet.
We are pleased to announce, after much effort, visitation in the ER at Harris Hospital and Ellenville Hospital has been reinstated effective today.
Please expect the following:
One visitor will be allowed to stay with the patient.
Visitors must be over 18.
Pre-screening of the visitor (for symptoms, etc.) will be required.
Visitors are required to wear a mask at all times and remain with the patient (switching of visitors is not allowed).
As of today, Orange Regional does not allow visitors (except in cases permitted by the governor – i.e., Pediatrics, Maternity, Dementia, etc.), but we hope that will change in the near future.
