Visits with patients at TidalHealth Peninsula Regional Hospital in Salisbury are not permitted effective today.
The decision was made in response to local COVID-19 trends. A similar policy at TidalHealth Nanticoke Hospital in Seaford took effect October 31st.
There are a few exceptions, including permission of one support person for outpatient and elective surgery patients. Visits are also allowed for patients in end-of-life care.
TidalHealth says there was a positive case of the virus in the hospital’s service area, and a higher number of COVID-19-Positive patients have recently been admitted.
