[Seguin, Texas] June 24, 2020 – The total active COVID-19 cases in Guadalupe County has risen to 79 with193 cases pending investigation. In an effort to protect the health of our patients and staff, and in the interest of limiting exposure to respiratory illness associated with the COVID-19 virus, GRMC is temporarily limiting visitor access. Effective June 25, 2020 at 7:00am, no visitors will be allowed except for limited circumstances. Exceptions include: End of life, childbirth, goodbye visit of military personnel departing for deployment, and designated caregiver of a pediatric patient. Additionally, no visitors will be allowed for COVID patients in the Public Health Emergency unit (PHE) or ICU during this time.

At this time we have temporarily closed the Patient Tower Entrance and will be processing patients through the Central and ER entrances. The Central Entrance is open Monday-Friday 5:45am-6:00pm and the Emergency Room entrance is open 24 hours a day.

GRMC knows that social and emotional support are important aspects of patient care. We have a team of IT and counseling professionals working to arrange alternate methods of communication to keep our patients linked to their families. COVID-19 is a serious situation and continues to evolve. GRMC will continue to evaluate and respond to provide the best and safest care possible in these challenging times.
