WINSTON-SALEM — As COVID-19 cases continue to decline in our communities, Novant Health is adjusting its visitor restrictions. As of Monday, March 15, at 8 a.m., most adults and children hospitalized at Novant Health facilities in North Carolina will be allowed to have two visitors per day. Restrictions remain in place for COVID-19 positive patients who are hospitalized or in the emergency room, as well as patients who are under investigation for COVID-19. Exceptions may continue to be granted in special circumstances, such as end-of-life care.

Visitors are required to complete a routine screening questionnaire with temperature assessment. Visitors must also wear a mask for the duration of the visit as is standard practice for all patients and team members at our facilities.
