Valley Health loosens hospital visitation rules

by Kate Evans

The Level Yellow visitation guidelines for all Valley Health facilities, including War Memorial Hospital in Berkeley Springs, were loosened on June 28 to let patients have more visitors. Visitation has been restricted to Level Yellow due to COVID-19 and influenza.

For most patients who are adult inpatient and critical care unit, the change means that visitation will increase to up to four guests in the hospital per day, with up to two visitors at the bedside at a time . . .
