With COVID surge, only vaccinated people allowed to visit Memorial hospitals

The health system’s doctors are caring for 387 patients who are COVID-19 positive, with more than 98% of them unvaccinated — 46 more in the last three days and a 225% increase from only three weeks ago when the health system had only 105 COVID patients on July 1. Among the COVID patients, 43 are in intensive care, with two-thirds of those critically ill patients on ventilators.
