Baptist could not be immediately reached for comment on whether the surge in key COVID-19 metrics for children and youths played a role in the tightened restrictions. Families with special situations should contact their care team. Full visitation guidelines can be found at www.wakehealth.edu/Coronavirus/Visitor-Restrictions.
All visitors remain required to pass a health screening and properly wear a mask that covers the nose, mouth and chin at all times. “Parents or guardians are asked to only bring children as visitors to outpatient visits if childcare is not available,” the system said in a brief statement.
No visitors are permitted for adult patients who are COVID-19 positive, and for those suspected of having COVID-19. There is an exception for individuals in end-of-life situations. It affects the main Atrium Wake Forest Baptist campus in Winston-Salem, as well as community hospitals in Bermuda Run, High Point, Lexington and Wilkesboro.
