Flu Season

Each year healthcare providers begin to see respiratory syncytial virus, colds, and influenza in December and January. We may continue to see them through April.

Current Visitor Restrictions 2-2010
Due to an increase in respiratory illness, no children under the age of 12 are allowed in the Pediatric, NICU, Labor & Delivery and Mother Newborn units.

Please note that nursing staff may ask visitors that show signs or symptoms of cold or flu not visit in an effort to protect our patients and staff from such illness.

These restrictions may be altered based on community outbreak and recommendation by City County Health Department in collaboration with both hospitals.
