TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — In a new policy announced Friday, Capital Regional Medical Center is now allowing one visitor per patient in the hospital.

This is a turnaround from the policy the hospital announced on Jan. 12, when they stopped allowing most visitors.

The entry point for visitors in the new policy is the hospital's main entrance.

The hospital also said that visitors will still be restricted from visiting COVID-19 designated units.

The new policy has visiting hours of 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, and all visitors will be screened at the entry and given a mask to wear during their visit.
