Lake Regional relaxes visitor policies

Another mid-Missouri hospital announces it’s relaxing its visitor policies.

Starting today, Lake Regional Health System will allow all hospital patients to have two visitors, except for those patients being treated for COVID-19.  The new two-visitor policy also applies to the Emergency Department, Outpatient Services, and Wound Healing Center.

However, patients visiting the Cancer Center or Lake Regional clinics are still limited to one support person. 

Visitors are reminded they’ll need to wear a mask and stay in patient rooms, instead of sitting in waiting rooms or common areas.
