Arizona Doctor Explains How Visitation Rules Are Easing Up At Some Hospitals

Phoenix-area hospitals are generally starting to relax their restrictions on visitors, as the surge in the number of COVID-19 cases the state saw earlier this summer has eased.

Valleywise Health is one of those systems that’s now allowing many patients to have a visitor, although the restrictions are still in place for those in COVID-19 units and in behavioral health settings.

The Show spoke with Dr. Michael White, the chief clinical officer for Valleywise, for more about how visitation is unfolding.
