Michigan hospital reinstates visitor limits after cases rise

A Detroit-area hospital says it will reinstate visitor restrictions out of an abundance of caution following a rise in coronavirus cases among staff, patients and visitors.
Beaumont Health said the limits will begin Thursday at its Farmington Hills campus. Beaumont hospitals have cared for more COVID-19 patients than any other system in Michigan.
No one will be allowed in the rooms of patients with pending or positive tests except in end-of-life or other extreme circumstance.
In cases unrelated to COVID-19, one person can visit under a number of exceptions.
Michigan reported nine additional coronavirus-related deaths and 517 more confirmed cases.á
