Two Baton Rouge-area hospitals are making changes to their visitation rules due to increased COVID-19 cases.

Our Lady of the Lake and Baton Rouge General are now allowing one visitor per patient who is at least 18-years old between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.

COVID-19 positive patients can have one visitor for one hour per day.

Visitors will also be required to wear masks and go through a health screening, including a temperature check.
