MercyOne and Broadlawns Medical Center in Des Moines, Iowa, and UnityPoint Health in West Des Moines, Iowa, reintroduced visitor restrictions at their area hospitals following surging COVID-19 activity, the Des Moines Register reports.

Visitors are barred from the systems' combined six hospitals in the Des Moines area.

Patients who are "imminently dying" can have two visitors at a time, and visitors are still allowed in emergency departments, outpatient clinics, surgery centers and birthing centers.

All visitors must wear a mask when entering the hospital and will be screened for symptoms of COVID-19.
