HCHC announces temporary change in visitation policy

Because of increased flu activity, Henry County Health Center has implemented a temporary visitation policy for the Maternity Services Department.

Effective immediately, the only visitors allowed in Maternity Services are parents, grandparents and siblings of the infant. Any individuals with respiratory and/or influenza symptoms, such as coughing, fever, aches, sore throat and runny nose are asked and expected not to visit patients in Maternity Services until further notice.

The restriction is a safety precaution to maintain a healthy hospital environment for our mothers and newborns at Henry County Health Center.
