(Brockville General Hospital)

New visiting hours and restrictions have been put in place at Brockville General Hospital. 

Nick Vlacholias, CEO and President of the hospital, said Monday that tweaks are being made to help keep everyone safe, which will mean one visitor per patient every second day. 

"We need to change our visiting policy to ensure patients have their friends and family come and visit safely," Vlacholias said. 

Visitors will also be pre-screened for COVID-19 and will have to wear a mask while inside the hospital.

Virtual visits can also be booked through the hospital and visiting guidelines are expected to be continually updated as time goes on.
