Marian Regional Medical Center is relaxing its visitation policy after receiving updated guidelines from the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department.

The new policy says there can only be one visitor at a time, per patient and visitors must be over the age of 16.

Visiting hours are from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Visitors should enter through the main entrance.

The hospital is also offering virtual video visits as an alternative.

Hospital officials say they are still taking the necessary precautions for the well-being of patients.

Lompoc Valley Medical Center has also eased restrictions on visitors at its hospital.
