Norton County Hospital adjusts its visiting status

December 16, 2020

NORTON, Kan. – Effective Thursday, Dec. 17 at 10 a.m., Norton County Hospital’s visiting status will change. The hospital currently is not allowing visitors, but with a lower number of active COVID-19 cases in Norton County, the hospital is beginning to allow visitors in some cases. The following reflects the new visiting status:

Some visiting exceptions that are currently in place may still apply facility-wide. For example, one visitor serving as a guardian to a minor child or advocate for a patient with certain specific needs may be allowed. It must be the same visitor per patient under these circumstances (no swapping people as the one visitor). There are also exceptions for end-of-life circumstances.

Due to the changing COVID-19 environment, visiting status is subject to change at any time. Watch the Norton County Hospital’s website and social media pages for the most updated information.
