To protect our patients, family members, guests and Team Members, Memorial Health is changing its visitation policies during flu season. The revised visitation guidelines below will now be in effect at Memorial:
Individuals who are experiencing cold symptoms should not enter patient care areas at Memorial. All visitors should be healthy. No one with flu-like symptoms will be permitted in patient rooms. Flu-like symptoms include fever, coughing, sneezing, sore throat, or upset stomach.
Anyone coming into the hospital with flu or cold symptoms should wear a mask. Masks will be available for those who need them.
Family members and guests 18 years of age and under will not be allowed to visit patients. Special consideration for sibling visits will be considered on a case-by-case basis, if there are no symptoms.
