Editor’s Note: Story has been updated to reflect the hospital’s decision to continue their no-visitor policy.
Loring Hospital in Sac City has announced they have decided to not move forward with easing restrictions on visitors to their facilities. The hospital originally planned to begin easing restriction on June 29 by allowing one support person for adult patients receiving treatment in the emergency, inpatient, surgical and select outpatient departments. However, hospital administrators chose to delay easing restrictions due to the recent spike in COVID-19 cases in their services area. Loring Hospital will continue with their no visitor policy until further notice. These restrictions are subject to change. For more information, follow the link included below.
