Flu: Important Information for Patients and Visitors

If you are a visitor of a patient with flu like symptoms, and not a primary caregiver, we ask you not to visit, but to call instead.

If you are a primary caregiver (e.g. a spouse, parent, significant other or the support person), you are welcome to visit.

However, we ask that you:

  • Wear a mask while in the patient room
  • Stay in the patient room
  • Go directly home after leaving the patient and not go to the dining room or other public areas

You are also asked to:

  • Clean your hands frequently in a restroom or by using the waterless hand gel (Purell®) dispensers
  • Use tissues and promptly dispose of them in the trash

Thank you in advance for your understanding during this unique time, and for your full cooperation. For additional information please visit our Flu Prevention section.
