COVID-19 Information & Resources
Licking Memorial Health Systems (LMHS) continues to monitor the situation surrounding COVID-19 and is taking all necessary steps and precautions to keep our patients, staff and visitors safe.  Below is a list of current information and resources regarding COVID-19 and the measures that LMHS has recently implemented in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As the state continues a gradual, multi-phased reopening process, Governor Mike DeWine has authorized all surgical procedures to resume.  Patients may contact their physician to schedule surgeries or procedures that were delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Patients should discuss with their physicians any new or chronic conditions that may have a significant impact on their quality of life and make a joint decision about any procedure.  In order to comply with social distancing and other restrictions set forward by Governor DeWine, Hospital visitation restrictions remain in place.  Patients are allowed one support person to accompany them to their procedure.  Visitors are required to wear a cloth face covering and practice social distancing measures.

LMHS is requiring all visitors to wear a face mask when visiting any of our healthcare facilities.  Even those who feel well and are not exhibiting symptoms may be carrying the coronavirus.  Covering the mouth and nose will help to prevent the spread of the virus.  In addition to mask usage, LMHS encourages all visitors to maintain a safe social distance of six feet from others.  Guidelines for wearing face coverings can be found here.

LMHS encourages the community to seek medical care when needed.  LMHS has implemented several policies during the COVID-19 pandemic to make sure our healthcare facilities are safe environments.  Employees undergo daily temperature checks and are required to wear proper personal protective equipment (PPE).  Patients with COVID-19 are isolated, and our Environmental Services staff maintains a frequent sanitization schedule of all surfaces and equipment.
