As Rockcastle Regional continues to closely monitor the evolving COVID-19 situation, and in response to the Governor’s guidance along with that of the Kentucky Department of Public Health, we are pleased to be able to loosen our visitation restrictions to our acute care hospital in a slow and closely monitored process.
Beginning May 12, 2020 at 4:00pm, visitors will be allowed to enter the acute care hospital under the following restrictions:
We continue to ask those who do visit, to be extra cautious when deciding to enter our facility as our patient population is extremely vulnerable. Those with fever, runny nose, body aches, or respiratory symptoms will not be permitted to visit.
When visiting, you are encouraged to wash your hands with soap and water when entering and leaving patient rooms. While in the facility, visitors are still encouraged to practice social distancing, including in patient rooms.
While we work to continue evaluate the safety of our visitation protocols, we will still coordinate with patients and family members to find other means of communication with their loved ones while they are in our facility, as we know staying in touch with family is very important to everyone.
