Albany Med updates visitation policy amid uptick in COVID-19 cases
Albany Medical Center is making some changes to its visitation policy due to the increase in COVID-19 cases.
These changes go into effect Nov. 29, 2021.
Visiting hours remain from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
One visitor, family member, or partner in care will be welcomed at a patient’s bedside at a time.
Up to two visitors, family members, or partners in care will be welcomed at a patient’s bedside at a time in critical care units.
Visitors must be 18 years or older.
Due to community prevalence of COVID-19, visitors will not be permitted to swap during visiting hours each day.
Hospital officials highly recommend that patients/families identify a unique visitor for each patient that would be the identified visitor for the duration of the hospitalization.
Exceptions remain, including for the Children’s Hospital where two visitors are allowed.
