Imagine not being able to hold your grandma's hand or talk with her as she lies in a hospital bed. So why is that? Some say the coronavirus is just a hoax, and some say their rights are being violated by being told to wear a mask and not gather in groups. Some say, "if you wore your damn mask and followed the CDC guidelines, maybe, just maybe, your grandma wouldn't be lying in a lonely hospital bed where no one is allowed to visit."

Some exceptions can be made for maternity patients, children who are patients, patients with disabilities, and patients from whom end-of-life is imminent.  Visitors who are sick will not be allowed to enter the hospital, no exceptions.
