Saint Charles Health System has tightened restrictions in response to COVID-19. With few exceptions, all visitors are banned. They encourage family and friends to visit patients by phone. No one under 12 will be allowed on the premises and no visitors will be allowed for patients in isolation. All elective surgeries and other select non-urgent outpatient services have been postponed through March 28th. The swabs used to test for COVID-19 are in short supply throughout the state and it's unlikely the hospital will be getting more. Therefore, people who are worried but feel fine will not be tested.
