Methodist Medical Center of Oak Ridge has announced visitor restrictions.
No one with any illness (fever, cough, shortness of breath, etc.) should visit, MMC said in a social media post.
Only household contacts or those considered critical to the support of a patients’ health care may visit, said MMC, which is part of the Covenant Health network.
The restrictions were announced as the nation continues to prepare for a COVID-19 outbreak, the respiratory illness caused by the new coronavirus.
