Candler County Hospital has suspended visitation, effective Tuesday, Aug. 4, for all patients. 

The Emergency Department will suspend visitors with the exception of a parent/guardian of an underage child or a caregiver who would need to be in the room with the patient. 

No family members will be allowed to wait in the lobby with the exception of surgery patients; these will be in the lobby until they are placed in the surgery waiting area. 

As always anyone who enters the facility must pass the wellness check and wear a mask. 

The only exception to the no temperature rule is a patient wishing to be seen in the ER. They will need to wear a mask, but regardless of temperature, they can be seen. 

Should you have any questions or medical concerns, call Candler County Hospital, 912-685-5741. 

Should you need immediate medical attention, visit the Emergency Department.
