Inpatient Flu Visitation Restriction in Effect

Flu Season: Visitor Restrictions Now in Effect

Due to widespread flu activity and in accordance with the Illinois Department of Public Health, Swedish Covenant Hospital is implementing a temporary visitation restriction policy which includes: 

  • No visitation by persons under 18. 
  • Limit of two visitors per patient at any time. 
  • Request that visitors with acute respiratory illness symptoms (fever, cough, sore throat) not visit. Such visitors should wear a mask if they must visit. 
  • Limit visits to patients in isolation for influenza to persons who are necessary for patient’s emotional well-being and care.
  • Promote compliance with Hand Hygiene and Respiratory Hygiene/Cough Etiquette. 

Patient safety is our top priority.

Thank you for your cooperation in preventing the spread of the flu.
