Arnot Health, following guidelines issued Wednesday, June 17 by the New York State Department of Health (DOH), is adjusting its visitation requirements at its Elmira and Bath locations.
“Arnot Health recognizes the hardship that has been caused throughout the COVID-19 pandemic by separation from loved ones who are ill,” said Jonathan Lawrence, President and CEO. “Our new visitation policy allows Arnot facilities to maintain our high degree of safety while offering our patients and their families the comfort of in-person visits.”
Changes to the COVID-19 visitor restrictions mandated by the DOH are outlined here.
With so much information being circulated about Covid-19, the 2019 coronavirus, it is easy to feel overwhelmed and confused. Arnot Health is monitoring the situation closely and working with our partners in the community to keep residents informed. Several local and national authorities have compiled resources to share information and they are available here. If you have concerns about your own health, please contact your primary care provider.
