Queen's North Hawaiʻi Community Hospital on the Big Island has reinstated its no-visitor policy.

Limited exceptions may be made in certain situations such as pediatric or maternity patients, and end-of-life care. Proof of vaccination and additional screening will be required.

Friends and family members are asked to consider using technology to stay connected and offer support remotely.

Free Wi-Fi is available for all patients and phones are available in all patient rooms.

"We apologize for the inconvenience this visitation restriction may cause. This is a very important way to limit the risk of possible exposure to COVID-19 for our patients, staff and community," the hospital said. "The visitation restriction will be reevaluated daily and removed as soon as conditions allow."
