TidalHealth expanding patient visitation starting June 21


SALISBURY, Md. – TidalHealth has announced they will be increasing visitation opportunities at both TidalHealth Peninsula Regional and TidalHealth Nanticoke.

Starting Monday, two designated visitors over the age of 18 will be allowed per patient during a patient’s stay, with the exception of patients suspected of having or confirmed to have COVID-19. These two designated people will be appointed by the patient and will be the only two individuals allowed to visit, but they will be allowed to visit at the same time.

In addition, visitation hours will be extended to 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays. Visitation on weekends and holidays will remain 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Visitors at all TidalHealth locations are still required to wear a face covering or mask that covers both their nose and mouth. People who cannot wear a face covering should not visit. Gaiters and bandanas will not be allowed. Visitors must show ID and will be verified as the patient’s appointed visitor. On entry, all visitors will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms and will not be allowed to go to a patient floor if they are found to have a fever or symptoms.

At TidalHealth Peninsula Regional, visitors should enter through the Hanna Main Entrance, adjacent to the Emergency Department, located near the Visitor Parking Garage off Vine Street. At TidalHealth Nanticoke, visitors should use the main entrance or your designated entrance.
