DETROIT (WXYZ) — Detroit Medical Center is putting temporary visitor restrictions in place amid a surge in COVID-19 cases in Michigan.

For adult inpatients at DMC Harper University Hospital, DMC Heart Hospital DMC Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital, DMC Hutzel Women’s Hospital, DMC Detroit Receiving Hospital, and DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital, one support person will be allowed to visit per day. They must be 18 or older.

Visiting hours are from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., 7 days per week.

As patients and visitors enter the hospital, they will be asked screening questions, have their temperature taken, are required to wear a face mask, will be asked to sanitize their hands, and must observe social distancing.

Visitors for patients in procedural care, the Emergency Department, clinics and those undergoing out patient procedures, will wait in a designated COVID SAFE area. As is the case with inpatients, only one support person is allowed to visit. Visitors are not allowed for those hospitalized patients who test positive for COVID-19 or those who have symptoms.

The visitation policy at DMC Children’s Hospital of Michigan and the DMC Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan has not changed.
