Now that the first weekend of phase one is over, one local hospital is making some changes to its visitation policy.
On Monday, Baton Rouge General announced that surgery patients at the hospital are allowed to have only one visitor for a part of their time in the hospital.
In a statement, Chief Nursing Officer Monica Nijoka said BRG does not want to separate patients from their families, citing that they are happy to be able to begin bringing people back in but with precaution.
The new modifications come after BRG had a no-visitor rule in place since the end of March.
