The red and green lights of social distancing

Social Distancing

Natchitoches Regional Medical Center (NRMC) services are open for patients. We are conducting advanced screening at all locations to be proactive. Additionally, all visitor access is suspended with the following exception: designation of one adult (18 and over) support person for Obstetrics, Pediatrics and Surgery patients for the entire time of visit. NRMC personnel remain available and dedicated to supporting the care of our community.

All outside commercial labs are overwhelmed today and have sent notices that they are not taking any COVID-19 specimens at this time. We anticipate this will be changing from day to day and will keep the public informed.

Please practice social distancing. Social distancing is the practice of reducing close contact between people to slow the spread of infections or disease. Please refer to the attached social distancing graphic
