The temporary visitation guidelines were implemented in March while the state was in its high-risk phase for the spread of COVID-19 and is now relaxing as most of the state went into low risk.
Patients in hospitals and emergency rooms can now have two designated visitors.
For suspect or positive COVID-19 cases, visitors are only allowed for patients under the age of 18, end-of-life certificates, “adult patients who need an adult to keep them safe” and some pregnant patients.
For end-of-life patients without COVID-19, two eligible visitors (at least 8 years old and wearing a mask) are allowed at a time, with a maximum of four visitors allowed during a hospital stay.
Visitors will continue to be screened for symptoms before entering the facility and must wear a face mask.
Hospital officials still recommend that patients come alone unless they need help, and urged the companions to wear a mask and show no symptoms of COVID-19.
Strict personal care, such as hand washing, and social distancing measures should also take place during visits.
Visit guidelines could be tightened if necessary.
