North State hospitals limiting visitors, as Shasta County health officials continue coronavirus testing 03-18-2020

Published March 19, 2020

Hospitals in the North State are now limiting who can come in and out of their facility.

Among some of those steps is limiting who can visit patients.

Both Mercy Medical and Shasta Regional Hospital are only allowing one person at a time per patient. Mercy is also not allowing any kids 14 year olds or younger. Mayers Memorial Hospital up in Fall Rivers is also suspending visitors to help protect its skilled nursing facility. The Redding Tribal Rancheria also set up screening areas at its Trinity and Shasta campuses.
