The Oklahoma State Department of Health is advising Oklahomans that epidemiologists have detected community spread of COVID-19 in our state.
Community spread means that individuals who have no travel history or contact with someone with the disease have become infected with virus.
Therefore, as a further precautionary measure, Stillwater Medical will suspend visitation beginning Tuesday, March 24, 2020.
The new policies are as follows:
• NO VISITORS are allowed for adult patients receiving care.
• ONE VISITOR FOR DURATION OF THE STAY is allowed for children and labor and delivery patients.
Stillwater Medical said that extenuating circumstances will be handled on a case-by-case basis. In addition, all people entering the hospital will continue to be screened for temperature to ensure it is safe to allow them to enter.
