In a post to the community on Facebook, UMass Memorial Health has updated their hospital visitor policy. Effective on December 4th, the health centers have implemented a “no visitor policy” in the Emergency departments at Harrington Webster and Southbridge.
The post blames “the recent uptick in COVID” cases. The no visitor policy has also been activated at the North Medical Surgery Unit in Southbridge.
The post can be found below. This is a change from the former “one visitor policy” that had been in place.
