• Hospital Visitation Restrictions

  • Children Visitation Restrictions Lifted

    Due to a significant decrease in influenza activity, our hospital clinical teams have lifted the visitation restriction on children under the age of 12. Visitors of any age are permitted into the hospital as long as they are not ill. Everyone is encouraged to practice good respiratory etiquette such as covering coughs and sneezes and washing their hands frequently. 

    Visitor Guidelines **  

    • School-aged children typically have the highest attack rates during community outbreaks of influenza and they serve as a major source of transmission of influenza within communities
    • Any visitors with fever, cough, or diarrhea should stay home
    • Any visitors with flu or cold symptoms should stay home
    • Visitors and patients should cover their cough (cough or sneeze into your sleeve)
    • Visitors will be required to wear personal protective equipment such as gown, gloves, and a mask if visiting a patient in isolation.

    ** In the case of a family hardship, exceptions can be made.

    Hand Hygiene

    • Visitors and patients should wash their hands frequently with soap and water or use hand sanitizer
    • Hand hygiene should take place before and after patient contact

    Flu Prevention Stations

    Visitors and patients should take notice of the flu prevention stations that have been placed throughout the hospital. The stations include personal protective equipment, such as hand sanitizer and face masks to help keep you safe.

    In the rare circumstance that a visitor with influenza-like illness is permitted into the hospital, they will be required to follow these rules:  

    • Wear a mask at all times while in the hospital
    • Go directly to the patient’s room
    • Leave the hospital when the visit is complete
