Lake Regional Updates Visitor Policy

Friday, November 5, 2021

Lake Regional Health System has updated its visitor policy. All non-COVID patients may have up to two support people at a time, both at the hospital and in the clinics. For everyone’s safety, Lake Regional asks that visitors limit their re-entries each day.

Masks Still Required

Lake Regional requires all staff, patients and visitors at all Lake Regional facilities to continue to wear masks, regardless of their vaccination status.
