The NO visitation policy is still in effect for COVID-19 positive patients or COVID-19 rule-out patients under any circumstances.
McLeod Health Cheraw will continue restrictive visitation in the hospital; however, patients undergoing elective surgery will be allowed to have one visitor accompany them.
For end-of-life patients. the attending physician or nursing supervisor can permit more than two visitors to see the patient.
