COVID-19 Update: New
Visitor Restrictions, Class Cancellations, Information Hotline Established
– Effective immediately, MidMichigan Health is implementing new visitor restrictions to protect patients, employees, health care providers and employees from the spread of illness. These changes will help minimize the number of people within MidMichigan’s Medical Centers in Alpena, Clare, Gladwin, Gratiot, Midland, Mt. Pleasant and West Branch.
The new restrictions allow for only one, healthy adult visitor per patient. Children will not be allowed.
In addition to this change, earlier today, the health system announced visitor restrictions to its Maternal Health (Maternity) and Women’s Health Units allowing for one support person only; the support person must be healthy and must be the same person throughout their stay; and no children will be allowed.
As a service to the community, MidMichigan Health has published a COVID-19 informational hotline with a reminder of CDC guidelines and recommendations. The hotline can be reached toll-free at (800) 445-7356 or (989) 794-7600.
