The Cleveland Clinic announced Monday that they would revise their visitation policy to allow more visitors at their Ohio and Florida locations, citing "steady" levels of COVID-19.

Starting Tuesday, the Cleveland Clinic will allow more visitors, including children, at both its Ohio and Florida medical facilities.

Hospital patients will be allowed two visitors at a time and children will be allowed to visit, the clinic announced Monday in a media release.

Patients were limited to two adult visitors per day, according to previous visitation guidelines.

The changes come because COVID-19 levels “remain steady,” allowing the hospital system to “safely allow more people to visit their loves ones,” the release said.

The new policy requires visitors to check-in when they arrive and check out before leaving, the release said.

Visitation hours remain 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and visitors must wear masks while inside Cleveland Clinic facilities, the release said. Anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or been exposed must wait no less than 10 days from testing positive or being exposed before visiting.
