Vaccinated visitors allowed at Queen’s North Hawaiʻi Community Hospital
Beginning Monday, vaccinated visitors are allowed at Queen’s North Hawaiʻi Community Hospital.
The Big Island hospital has had a no-visitor policy since Jan. 18 with limited exceptions for pediatric and maternity patients, and end-of-life care.
Visitors who are 18 or older and show proof of vaccination are allowed from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day — but will continue to not be allowed for COVID or infusion patients.
The no-visitor policy was reinstated during the height of the omicron surge. At the time, the island reported a seven-day average case count of 230.
COVID cases have since declined and the seven-day average daily case count has dropped below 60.
