(Thursday, March 19, 2020; Dededo, Guam) GRMC to Suspend Visitation, Effective 9 PM Tonight Visitation for Overnight Watchers to End Tomorrow at 9 AM

(Thursday, March 19, 2020; Dededo, Guam) Guam Regional Medical City (GRMC) will suspend visitation, effective tonight at 9 PM in response to the COVID-19 emergency. The suspension of visitation is in response to Governor Lou Leon Guerrero’s Executive Order 2020-05, issued earlier today, mandating social isolation.

Overnight watchers may stay tonight, however, effective tomorrow morning at 9 AM, visitation for overnight watchers will be suspended. Exceptions will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis for patients who are critically ill or on comfort care.

The suspension of visiting hours will affect all departments.

The only other exception will be for children brought to the Emergency Room, who may be accompanied by one parent or legal guardian.

GRMC regrets the need to make this decision, but it is vital to ensure the continuing safety of our patients and healthcare providers and workers during this critical time.
