On Monday, Aug. 30, new visitation guidelines went into effect at most Deaconess facilities.

According to Deaconess, most inpatients will now be limited to two designated visitors per day, with some exceptions under special circumstances.

Additionally, Deaconess' Emergency Department patients will be limited to one visitor, and its pediatric patients may have two.

Finally, Deaconess says no visitors under the age of 18 are permitted except for end-of-life situations.

Masks will continue to be required for all patients, visitors, and staff, with social distancing also required in all areas.

You can view the latest COVID-19 visitation guidelines from Deaconess on its COVID-19 visitor restriction page. Deaconess Women's Hospital is operating under its own set of visitation guidelines. The guidelines for the women's hospital can also be found on the same page.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
