Vidant Health Carefully Expands Visitation for Hospitals, Clinics and Emergency Departments

Press Release:

    Greenville, NC     As Vidant Health continues to respond to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic across North Carolina, we are taking steps to ensure the safety of all. Vidant remains vigilant with its screening process for all visitors, entry requirements and visitor restrictions by department.

    In response to decreased community spread and team member and community vaccination efforts, Vidant is carefully expanding visitation. Effective 7 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 11, Vidant will allow one healthy adult visitor, who is screened and masked at all times at most hospitals and clinics across the system during specified hours.

    Exceptions to these new restrictions include Vidant Roanoke-Chowan Hospital and clinics, which will continue to prohibit visitors, and Vidant North Hospital and clinics, which will allow one visitor from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. effective Feb. 16.

    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.


    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
