Halifax Health Announces New Visitation Policy

DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. – (March 23, 2020) – Halifax Health is implementing a new visitation policy for its Daytona Beach, Port Orange and Deltona hospitals in response to concerns about the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). 

Beginning Wednesday, March 25, Halifax Health will no longer allow patient visitation.  Exceptions to this policy include:

  • Patients under the age of 18 can be accompanied by one adult visitor (parent, legally authorized person or caregiver).  No additional visitors or siblings allowed.
  • Patients in the neonatal intensive care unit may have one adult visitor.
  • Obstetric patients may have one adult visitor.
  • Exceptions will be made for extenuating circumstances such as end-of-life or unique patient needs.
