On Thursday, Beaumont Health announced that it is adjusting its visitation policy as COVID-19 continues to spread throughout the state.

Beaumont will continue to allow one support person or visitor each day for non-COVID patients, but that same person will not be allowed to alternate with other people throughout the day unless they have prior approval from clinical leadership.

According to the health system, the new guidelines went into effect at 8 a.m. on Friday.
