Here are the details:

  • Visiting restrictions are lifted, but visitors 12 years or age and younger are still not allowed at this time.
  • Visiting hours go back to the normal schedule: 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
  • Be prepared for temperature screening of all patients and visitors at facility entrances.
