Freiburg (dpa / lsw) – Due to the high number of new corona infections in the southwest, more and more clinics are restricting visits by patients or prohibiting them entirely. For example, there is now a ban on visiting the university hospitals in Freiburg and Ulm. The houses in Mannheim, Ludwigsburg and in the Reutlingen district had previously announced that they wanted to use this measure to reduce the risk of infections in the clinic to a minimum.
However, exceptions apply, for example in the case of births or when children are in hospital. Even when patients are in intensive care or dying, relatives are allowed to visit them. Visitors must either be vaccinated, recovered, or tested.
Other clinics at least severely limit visits. At the University Hospital in Heidelberg and at the Robert Bosch Hospital in Stuttgart, patients are only allowed to receive one visitor for one hour a day. The Schwarzwald-Baar-Klinikum in Villingen-Schwenningen no longer allows several visitors to be in one patient room at the same time. In addition, the houses rely on the 2G rule. So if you haven’t been vaccinated or have recovered, you have to stay out there. At the university clinic in Tübingen, a negative corona rapid test is also required for the exclusively vaccinated and recovered visitors.
