COVID-19: HTJS shortens visiting hours

SEREMBAN, March 12 — The Tuanku Jaafar Hospital Seremban (HTJS) has shortened its visiting hours after the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared the spread of COVID-19 as a pandemic, and the hike in cases in Malaysia.

State Health Department (Public Health) deputy director Dr Mohammad Faid Abd Rashid said a ban on bringing children under 12 years old to the hospital would also be tightened.

‘’The visiting hours have been shortened to 1 pm until 2 pm and 5 pm until 6.30 pm daily including general holidays and public holidays (Saturday and Sunday).

‘’The proactive measure is to prevent the spread of COVID-19 among visitors, patients and the staff of HTJS,’’ he said here today.
