Bothwell reinstating Covid-19 testing for admitted patients

Effectively immediately. Bothwell Regional Health Center is reinstating a Covid-19 precaution for all admitted patients. Bothwell again will test all patients for Covid-19 upon hospital admission.

Patients will be placed in isolation and considered positive until test results are determined. This change is due to the rising number of positive Covid-19 cases in our community and the number of patients who are currently hospitalized with the virus.
