FLORENCE, S.C. — Effective June 4, 2020, McLeod Health has modified its visitation restrictions at McLeod Regional Medical Center, McLeod Health Cheraw and McLeod Health Clarendon.

These changes in visitor restrictions will allow patients to have one designated visitor over the age of 18 for the duration of their hospital stay. All visitors will be required to wear a face mask and visitor-issued armband/ID at all times. McLeod Health Cheraw will continue restrictive visitation in the hospital, however patients undergoing elective surgery will be allowed to have one visitor accompany them.

The no-visitation policy is still in effect for COVID-19 positive patients or COVID-19 rule-out patients.

On the campus of McLeod Regional Medical Center, patients of the McLeod Cancer Center may have one visitor accompany them to the hospital. For the protection of our Cancer Center patients, the visitor is asked to not enter the hospital and no visitors are allowed in the waiting rooms. Children’s Hospital, NICU and PICU patients may have two designated visitors (parents, caregivers or legal guardians).
