The increase in COVID cases in the region has prompted Columbia-based MU Health Care to tighten restrictions on hospital and clinic visitors.
MU Health says adult inpatients at University Hospital, the Missouri Orthopedic Institute, MPC and Women’s Hospital are now allowed one specific visitor for the entire hospital stay. Visitors are not permitted for adult urgent care patients.
No visitors will be allowed for adult patients diagnosed with COVID or for adult patients in semi-private rooms. Pediatric patients at University Hospital and at Women’s hospital are allowed up to two parents or guardians.
