Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital returning to pre-COVID visitor rules

Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital in Somerset has returned to many of the visitation rules in place before COVID-19.

Among the new rules in place are:

  • Patients will be allowed two visitors at a time.
  • All visitors should be 12 years of age or older.
  • All visitors will be required to wear a mask, at all times, while within the facility.
  • Visitors who have symptoms of COVID-19 including signs of respiratory infection or flu, new loss of taste or smell, or who have had close contact with a person who is positive or presumptive positive for COVID-19 should NOT enter Lake Cumberland facilities.
  • Visitors are NOT allowed for high-risk, isolation, immunocompromised or respiratory patients who are under observation or test positive for COVID-19.
  • Please continue to utilize alternative methods of communication, including technology, with patients as much as possible.
  • Visitors are not allowed for hospitalized patients between 9 PM and 6 AM.
  • LCRH will compassionately evaluate exceptions to this policy on a case-by-case basis such as those needed for end-of-life care and patients with dementia or other forms of altered mental status.
