SANTA BARBARA COUNTY, Calif. - Cottage Health announced Friday that it is now allowing a limited number of visitors into its facilities to support hospital patients.

To protect patients and staff, visitors will be asked to wear a face mask at all times and enter and leave only once per day.

Gathering areas such as cafeterias and waiting zones will remain closed to visitors.

Specific guidelines for each Cottage Hospital location can be found at Cottage Health's website here.
