In response to a rise in COVID-19 hospitalizations and case counts, starting at 5 a.m. on Thursday, July 22, 2021, Ochsner Lafayette General will be modifying their restricted visitor policy. "Please note that, for your safety and the safety of our patients, masking is strictly enforced for all employees, patients and guests and those unwilling to comply will be asked to leave –no exceptions."

Mask must also be worn properly, ensuring that the nose and mouth are covered continuously. Children under two years of age are excluded from masking requirements.

Visitors must be at least 12 years of age and always remain in the patient’s room. Visitors are to maintain social distancing at all times, including in waiting rooms, cafeterias and other shared areas. This policy effects all employees and visitors regardless of vaccination status in accordance with the requirements set by the Louisiana Department of Health.
