Mayo Clinic eases restrictions for hospitalized patients

(ABC 6 News) – Mayo Clinic in Rochester will ease restrictions for hospitalized patients, beginning Thursday.

The number of visitors per adult inpatient will be eased to two consistent designated visitors. Those visitors must be at least 5 years old, which is consistent with pediatric patient restrictions, which were relaxed on Feb. 7. An adult must accompany all visitors under age 16.

For the Family Birth Center, two consistent designated visitors age 16 or older will be allowed for the duration of the hospital stay. Overnight restrictions will be eased as well.
