Lee Health updates on COVID-19:

– Lee Health has implemented a temporary restricted visitation policy. This policy has been updated since it was first announced over the weekend, and the health care system is limiting all rooms to two visitors at a time and are restricting all visitors under the age of 12. The full policy can be found here:www.leehealth.org/our-services/public-health-awareness/hospital-visitation-temporary-restrictions.

– All visitors are being screened and asked to answer a questionnaire before being allowed in patient rooms. Entrances at some of the hospitals have been temporarily closed to make this process more efficient.

– As of today, patients will be able to utilize Lee TeleHealth services at no cost. Lee TeleHealth can be accessed throughwww.leetelehealth.org or by downloading the LeeTelehealth app on a tablet or smartphone. If a patient is determined to be at-risk for COVID-19, Lee TeleHealth physicians and providers are trained to walk patients through the appropriate steps of self-quarantine and who to contact for further evaluation.
