Baylor Scott & White Health is altering visitation policies at their facilities due to the delta variant of the COVID-19 virus.
The hospital group said in a tweet Tuesday that patients being treated for a condition other than COVID-19 will be allowed only one visitor at a time and that the visitor must be over the age of 16.
BSW Health said patients in neonatal intensive care units or pediatric units for conditions other than COVID-19 will be allowed up to two guests.
"We are continuing to restrict visitors for patients with confirmed or suspected COVID-19, except in certain circumstances," the company said. "Thank you for your understanding as we take this step to keep our patients, caregivers, and visitors safe."
