SARASOTA, Fla. (WFLA) – Sarasota Memorial Hospital is reducing visiting hours and limiting the number of patient visitors allowed inside the hospital due to the steep rise in COVID-19 cases.

The hospital says currently visiting hours are from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. daily and all visitors must wear a mask and be at least 16 years old.

Visitors must check in with Sarasota Memorial Hospital employees upon entry and are expected to also check out before departing SMH.

The latest weekly report on COVID-19 cases in Florida shows the state in the midst of a third spike, with the highest daily increases recorded since January 2021.
