Dignity Health hospitals Arroyo Grande Community Hospital (AGCH), French Hospital Medical Center (FHMC), and Marian Regional Medical Center (MRMC) are implementing visitor restrictions out of concerns over significant flu-like activity in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties and preventing COVID-19, according to hospital officials.
The restrictions include:
- All visitors must be 16 years of age or older.
- Only one visitor per patient per day is allowed in the hospital.
- Patients and visitors may only enter through the hospital main entrance or the Emergency Department. All other entrances are currently employee-access only.
- At MRMC, visitors are currently not permitted at Marian Extended Care Center (MECC).
The hospital says these changes are effective immediately.
