CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — Driscoll Children’s Hospital has updated its visitation policy for both hospital and clinic patients.

According to a news release, effective immediately, only one adult primary caregiver will be allowed per patient.

Other visitors, including siblings, are not allowed to visit.

The hospital revised its policy due to the COVID-19 threat to the community.

The statement continued, "these updated visitor restrictions may be inconvenient; however, it is done because we want to keep you healthy."

If the patient or the parent show any signs of COVID-19, the hospital says you will be given a white band during the screening process you will be restricted to your child’s room.

If you have any questions, you can call the Patient Relations Department at (361)694-4035.
