Help us Duck the Flu

Temporary flu season visitor restrictions

It's flu season. Please note our temporary visitor restrictions for the safety and well-being of our patients, staff and visitors:

  • Visitors under the age of 18 are not permitted in the inpatient unit, same day surgery, rehabilitation units or motion analysis center.
  • Only patients and children seeking evaluation and treatment should be brought to the hospital.
  • When not in a patient room, we ask patients and visitors to stay in the clinic lobby, activity mall or cafeteria areas of the hospital.
  • All tours, school groups and special events are canceled during this time.

All visitors should be healthy. Please do not visit if you have a fever greater than 100 degrees and a sore throat or cough.

People who have been recently ill with the above symptoms should not visit unless they have been symptom free for 24 hours. If someone in your household is sick with the above symptoms, watch for signs of illness. If you become sick, please leave promptly.

Here are a few tips to stay healthy:

  • Perform hand hygiene frequently by either washing with soap and water or rubbing your hands together with an alcohol based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Cover your cough and sneezes - use Kleenex, dispose of properly and clean your hands after handling it. If you do not have a Kleenex, use the bend of your arm to cough into.
