Visiting patients in hospital has been ruled out since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, and Mayo University Hospital is again reminding the public that visiting is still not permitted - other than in exceptional circumstances, and end of life situations.

In these circumstances, families should phone the hospital and speak to the relevant ward manager to see if a visit can be facilitated.

In a statement, hospital manager Catherine Donohoe says she appreciates how difficult and upsetting it is for families not to be able to visit, but it's an important infection control measure to protect patients and staff.

She says they're working on ways to improve communication with designated family members, and also have a drop-off service to enable people to drop in clothing or other items required by patients.
