DO NOT visit if you are ill or have any signs and symptoms of influenza (a cough, runny
nose, fever, sore throat, muscle aches, fatigue).
Immediate family members only. Infants/small children are discouraged from visiting.
Persons with compromised immune systems or pulmonary complications should visit
only if absolutely necessary.
Any visitor noted to have influenza-like symptoms will be given a mask and asked to

In the Birth Center, visitors should be immediate family only. Siblings that are not
showing signs of illness will be allowed to visit.
