Memorial Health Systems is relaxing restrictions on visitors, as new COVID cases continue to decrease. Restriction easements will go into effect on Wednesday at the five Memorial Health System hospitals, Memorial Medical Center, Abraham Lincoln, Decatur, Passavant, and Taylorville. These hospitals will allow one visitor at a time for adult inpatients between 8 AM and 8 PM. For inpatient obstetrics patients, the hospital will allow one support person and one additional visitor. The two people must be the same for the duration of the stay. 


There will still be no visitors allowed for anyone being treated for COVID or patients being evaluated for COVID. All visitors must wear a facemask at all times. 


For all other visitor guidelines, emergency department allows one visitor, two visitors are allowed for inpatient end of life, and two parents or guardians are allowed for pediatrics inpatient and outpatient. For surgery or procedure, one visitor is allowed in the waiting room for the duration of the procedure. 


For more information please contact Taylorville Memorial Hospital or the Memorial Health System.
