Mercy Health Lorain has issued a statement regarding visitor restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic:
Beginning at 5 pm on Friday, March 13, for the health of our patients, visitors, health care providers and communities, we ask that people do not visit our Mercy Health Lorain Hospitals. For mother/baby and pediatric patients, visitors are limited to a designated partner or primary caretaker/guardian (only one at a time). Exceptions will be considered based on end-of-life situations or when a visitor is essential for the patient's care.
We recognize that this can be disappointing to our visitors, patients and residents, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you or your family. The health of you and our patients is our top priority.
The health system remains aligned with current and recent CDC guidelines, which can be found at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/specific-groups/high-risk-complications.html
