Visitor policies change April 1

With the current decline of COVID-19 hospitalizations and infection rates in our community, the BJC visitor policy team is preparing to methodically and cautiously ease visitor restrictions that were put in place during the pandemic for the protection of patients and staff. The first step in this gradual process will be a return to pre-COVID-19 visiting hours at each BJC hospital and a return to two visitors for all obstetrical care areas except clinical appointments. These changes will take effect April 1. Ambulatory clinics will continue to allow one guest (over age 16) to accompany the patient and two guests for pediatric patients.
