To protect patients and prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the community, Northeast Georgia Health System (NGHS) is limiting visitation to patients at all Northeast Georgia Medical Center campuses– as well as Laurelwood and New Horizons Limestone and Lanier Park.
Visitation limitations and restrictions vary from unit to unit based on the needs of the patients in those areas:
- Emergency department, inpatient rooms, and labor and delivery will be limited to one visitor per room and the visitor must be at least 12 years old.
- Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) are restricted to only the baby’s mother and the other NICU wristband holder.
- No visitors will be allowed into the intensive care unit (ICU), except for end-of-life-care.
- New Horizons Limestone and Lanier Park have restricted visitation.
Certain exceptions may be made to these policies on a case-by-case basis. Additionally, visitors who are feeling sick at all are kindly asked to stay home and seek medical attention.
