COVID hospitalization rates are dropping significantly across Texas, and Lamar County is no exception. As a result, Paris Regional Medical Center is loosening its tight guidelines on visitation at the hospital. All non-COVID patients can receive visitors from 7:00 am – 7:00 pm. Visitors must be over the age of 16 except for OB, and patients in the OB may receive visits from siblings. The hospital still screens everyone entering for COVID symptoms, and mask-wearing is mandatory.
