Vidant North in Roanoke Rapids will allow one visitor beginning February 16 from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Vidant Roanoke-Chowan in Ahoskie will continue to prohibit visitors, Vidant Health said in a statement today.

At other hospitals Vidant, effective at 7 a.m. Thursday, will allow one healthy adult visitor who is masked at all times.

The decision comes as a response to decreased community spread of the novel coronavirus and community vaccination efforts.

Visitors may not leave and re-enter, or switch out with another visitor during hours of visitation for the day.

“Despite the encouraging trend of cases, it remains vitally important that community members continue to practice safety measures such as washing hands, wearing a mask and avoiding large gatherings,” the health system said. “This is an evolving situation and Vidant continues to monitor the spread and examine local data, including COVID-19 cases in our region and in hospitals, and will adjust visitation restrictions accordingly.”

Vidant strongly encourages visitors to consider virtual visitation options such as FaceTime and phone calls.

Assistance with virtual visits, including iPads for patients without the necessary technology, is available on request. “Virtual visitation is the safest way to stay connected with a loved one.”

Patients should limit their belongings to a few key items and refer to the below tips:

Bring your phone, tablet or other electronic device to connect with family members

Limit clothing to clean undergarments and one outfit for discharge

Wear or pack non-slip shoes
