Southern Tennessee Regional Health System in Lawrenceburg has issued a zero visitor policy due to the surge in COVID patients.

Southern Tennessee Regional Health System issued the following statement regarding new policy:

"Due to the recent surge in COVID patients and our deep care and concern for our patients and our employees, we have decided to reinstate a zero-visitor policy at our hospital effective Wednesday, November 25.

This is a hard decision to make because we know how hard it is to be in the hospital by yourself and also how hard it is for your loved one to drop you off and wait. Safety is our top priority here at STRHS; yours and ours, and we promise to never stop doing all we can to continue #makingcommunitieshealthier."
