For the protection of our patients and staff, NO visitors are allowed at this time in Floyd County Medical Center’s hospital, clinic, outpatient areas, and emergency department.
Some exceptions will be made for situations for special patient care needs on a case-by-case basis, including:
- Pediatric patients

- Patients receiving end-of-life care as determined by medical professionals
For approved exceptions, only ONE visitor per patient will be allowed. They must be:
- Age 18 or older
- Either immediate family members, powers of attorney, guardians or patient representatives
- Healthy with no symptoms of illness including respiratory or fever

We understand that these restrictions will be difficult for patients and their loved ones. We are taking these necessary steps to protect our patients and staff.
We continue to encourage you to use other methods to connect with your friends and loved ones (e.g. telephone, Face Time, etc.)
