Scotland County Hospital Loosens COVID-19 Restrictions

With COVID-19 infections falling and vaccination rates climbing, Scotland County Hospital officials are loosening COVID-19 restrictions for visitors and patients and making other changes to accommodate patients, staff and visitors. As of yesterday, staff screeners are longer be stationed at the entrances to Memphis Medical Services and the Hospital. Rather, as people enter the facilities, a free-standing, non-contact infra-red temperature assessment device will serve as the initial fever check to identify and triage people who may have elevated temperatures. Starting April 1st, visitor restrictions will change to allow up to 2 individuals in with non-COVID patients (inpatient, outpatient or clinic patient). The current policy of no visitors for COVID-19 positive or person under investigation patients, unless end of life, will continue. More details can be found at
