Current Restrictions at Jones Memorial Hospital

To maintain a safe environment for Jones Memorial Hospital patients, families and staff, and reduce exposure to COVID-19, JMH is suspending visiting hours in light of a recent increase in positive COVID-19 cases in Allegany County and surrounding areas. Effective Oct. 15, there will be a ZERO-visitor policy for adult patients except for support persons as outlined below.

  • Pediatric patients may have one guardian visitor.
  • OB patients may have one support person with them throughout labor and delivery.
  • One support person is allowed when deemed essential to the care of the patient, meaning it is medically necessary.
  • One support person is allowed for any patient with an intellectual and/or developmental disability and patients with cognitive impairments, including dementia.
  • End-of-life visitation will be allowed.
  • The Jones Memorial Hospital café is closed to the public until further notice.

Hospital staff will continue to verbally screen all those entering any JMH building or practice.

*All hospital services and practices remain open and fully capable of caring for our community’s needs. At this time, this policy change does not impact any surgeries or procedures.
