ANNISTON - Effective Feb. 15 at 7 a.m., all Regional Medical Center patients who are negative for COVID-19 will be allowed one visitor during their stay from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Visitors will not be al­lowed to rotate with others during the patient’s stay, as we continue to recognize the importance of reducing un­necessary exposures to our patients and staff. All visitors will be subject to screening criteria, and no visitation will be permitted overnight. This update will apply to all patients in hospital inpatient units, procedure areas and the emergency room. Visi­tation for labor and delivery patients remains unchanged (one visitor).

Patients who have tested positive or patients under investigation (PUI) for COVID-19 are not allowed in-person visitors. Virtual visits are available to keep patients and families con­nected in these situations.

For full details on RMC’s updated visitation policy, please refer to the attached press release or reach out di­rectly with questions at 256-405-7555.
