Adult WVU Medicine patients asked to attend clinic appointments solo

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – With the spike in COVID-19 cases in West Virginia over the last few weeks, WVU Medicine is asking all adult patients to attend their clinic appointments alone.

This is an update to the relaxation of the visitation restrictions that was announced in June.

In an effort to minimize the number of people entering its hospitals and clinics, WVU Medicine is requesting that, when possible, family members and friends stay at home or wait in their vehicles in the clinic parking lot during adult patient appointments.

Patients are asked not to arrive to their appointment more than 15 minutes early. Patients and visitors over age two are required to wear a mask.

WVU Medicine Berkeley Medical Center, Jefferson Medical Center, and University Healthcare Physicians will continue to implement the no-visitor policy that was put into place as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
