Hospitals banning visitors. 

Spectrum Health, along with Mercy Health, and Metro Health – University of Michigan Health have announced that beginning today, Monday, March 16, with a few exceptions, visitors will not be allowed at any locations, including hospitals, outpatient locations and long-term care facilities. For special circumstances, one approved visitor will be allowed in situations involving patients undergoing surgery and pediatric, maternity, end of life or critically ill patients.

The policies = align with a new executive order from Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. The additional restrictions are intended to prevent the spread of illness and protect patients, health care workers and our communities.
