GRMC Visitation to Restrict Children Under 12 Beginning October 15

(Friday, October 13, 2023; Dededo, Guam) Effective Sunday, October 15, 2023, Guam Regional Medical City (GRMC) will no longer permit visitors under the age of 12, except for Comfort Care patients. The revision of visitation guidelines serves as an added measure of caution towards the safety of patients and children in clinical areas.

The following information reflects GRMC’s current Visitation Guidelines. Please be advised that children under the age of 12 visiting Comfort Care patients, as well as visitors for any level of care under 18, must be supervised by an accompanying adult (18 years of age or older) at all times. Additionally, visitors under 18 cannot be left unattended in the patient room; the patient does not qualify as adult supervision. All COVID-19 positive patients are still not permitted any visitors, except for pediatric patients in the Emergency Department, where one parent/guardian may be present.


Patients are allowed up to two (2) visitors between 9AM – 9PM daily. 


Patients are allowed up to four (4) visitors every hour from 9AM – 10AM, 10AM – 11AM, 1PM – 2PM; 2PM – 3PM; 8PM – 9PM. No visitors will be permitted from 11AM – 1PM, 3PM – 8PM. No switching will be permitted regardless of level of care. 

APPOINTMENTS AND PROCEDURES (without hospital stay)

Outpatients are allowed one (1) adult companion (18 years or older). 


Patients in the Emergency Department are allowed one (1) visitor with no rotation. Pediatric patients, both COVID-19 positive and negative, must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.


Patients in Comfort Care are allowed up to four (4) visitors between 9AM – 9PM daily. Children under the age of 12 must be supervised by the accompanying adult at all times, and cannot be left in the room unsupervised with the patient. The patient does not qualify as adult supervision.


There is no limit of visitors for viewings in the morgue. However, visitation is limited to two (2) hours.

GRMC would like to thank the community for their continued cooperation and support as we navigate through changes that continue to foster a safe environment for our patients, visitors, and staff.
