If the right to visit has been significantly restricted since October 17th (see below), a general ban on visiting will again apply from next Wednesday, October 28th.
Exceptions are possible, for example when visiting children or caring for the dying.
In individual cases, this should be clarified with the treating doctor, according to a press release.

“We decided to take this drastic step in order to protect our patients and employees and to prevent the virus from getting into our hospital,” emphasizes Managing Director Felix Rauschek.
"Unfortunately, we are currently unable to allow relatives and visitors to enter our house in view of the infection protection measures taken against the coronavirus.
We kindly ask for your understanding. ”Of course, we know that relatives would like to be by the side of their loved ones, says the managing director.“ But we as a clinic also have a special responsibility to prevent the spread of the virus as best as possible. ”
Events with external participants are also currently not possible in the hospital.
Currently only a few corona cases in the Tölzer Clinic
In the Asklepios City Clinic Bad Tölz, only a few Covid-19 patients are currently being treated.
Predefined areas for the treatment of (suspected) cases that require further inpatient treatment in the hospital due to the severity of their symptoms are set up and can be expanded if necessary.
"We are prepared for a possible further increase in coronavirus cases and the staff are equipped with the appropriate protective equipment," said the clinic.
Original notification dated October 17, 2020
Bad Tölz - The Asklepios City Clinic Bad Tölz is adjusting the visiting rights from this Saturday, October 17th and is returning to the following rule: "One visitor per patient per day", according to an Asklepios press release.
Visiting hours are daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
"In times of increasing Covid numbers in the district and the region, this serves the safety of patients, other visitors and employees in our clinic," says clinic managing director Felix Rauschek.
Visitors have to register every time, bring their own mouth and nose protection and wear it like the patients during their stay.
In addition, the following applies: “Only one visitor per room at the same time.” Therefore, waiting times could arise.
Wearing FFP masks with an exhalation valve is not permitted as they do not provide adequate protection for other people.
Access to the clinic only via the main entrance
When entering and leaving the hospital and patient rooms, visitors are asked to disinfect their hands. “It is important that the relatives can continue to visit the patients.
The subject of hygiene and patient safety is still the top priority, ”said Rauschek.
Visitors with cold symptoms should expressly stay away from the hospital.
Access to the clinic is only possible via the main entrance.
The hospital will continue to offer the full range of treatments, the press release said.
And: "The clinic is well prepared for a possible increase in corona cases." However, the Asklepiosklinik treated the last corona patient around two months ago.
Currently only one person in the district who tested positive for Covid-19 is in inpatient treatment - but because of an underlying disease and not because of the corona virus, as the district office reports.
