Sanford Bemidji and Bagley increase visitor restrictions

Sanford Bemidji and Bagley Medical Centers are increasing visitor restrictions.

According to a release, the change comes as COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations continue to rise locally.

As of yesterday, patients must choose two people who will be allowed to visit each day during established hours, and masks must be worn at all times.

Exceptions to the visitor policy update include pediatric hospital patients, those in the special care nursery, and end-of-life patients.
