SSM Health Adds Visitor Restrictions


SSM Health is further restricting visitor standards as the COVID-19 crisis grows.

The health organization, which operates hospitals in Mt. Vernon and Centralia, is putting a "no visitor" policy in place for the time being - in an effort to slow the spread of disease.

Officials say the "no visitor" policy will have some exceptions, but only in extreme cases.

Jennifer Fuller joined Capitol News Illinois in July 2023 as the organization’s broadcast director. She will oversee the launch and operations of CNI’s new broadcast division.
