No kids allowed to visit in new DCMC restrictions

For the first time in six months, Door County Medical Center is limiting how many visitors you can have at the hospital. Door County Medical Center released the new guidelines on Monday as the area has seen a rise in COVID-19 cases, including 15 new positive tests in the public health department’s last report. Under the new rules, no kids under the age of 12 are allowed to visit the hospital. Patients with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 are not allowed visitors unless they are a pediatric patient. Adult patients are allowed one visitor and pediatric patients are allowed to have two parents or guardians if they agree to stay in the room at all times. The skilled nursing facility is allowed to have visitors, but you have to contact them for current guidelines. You can read the full list of new guidelines effective August 24th below.

 

Skilled Nursing Facility- Visitors allowed with restrictions.  Contact SNF for current guidelines.

 

Hospital/Clinic:
