Park City Hospital owner Intermountain Healthcare announced on Monday, April 5, that the hospital system will allow visitors for all patients at its facilities as COVID-19 case rates decline in Utah.

 

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began a year ago, hospitals disallowed all patient visitors regardless of the severity of illness. Many of the more than half a million Americans who died from COVID-19 did so alone due to hospital visitor restrictions.
