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.

Per the announcement made by Governor DeWine, Licking Memorial Hospital (LMH) will resume elective surgeries and procedures, effective Friday, May 1.  Procedures that do not require an overnight stay in a healthcare facility will take place at the Main Hospital and LMH – Tamarack.  Patients are allowed one support person to accompany them to their procedure.  Regular physician appointments, wellness checks, well-baby visits, imaging procedures, and diagnostic tests also will resume on May 1.

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.

LMHS is now asking all visitors to wear a cloth face covering 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 on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website:
