Community Medical Center in Toms River is Easing Visitor Rules
As we continue to move forward during the COVID 19 Pandemic Community Medical Center in Toms River has announced it will be easing it's visitor rules.
In a recent Patch article, officials from Community Medical Center, part of the RWJ Barnabas Health System, will be easing it's rules for visitors at the hospital in Toms River.
According to the article....Community Medical Center will begin allowing patient visitors again, although under strict guidelines, because the cases of the COVID 19 in the Garden State are continuing to decrease.
