Flu Season Visitor Policy | Adventist HealthCare | Maryland - Adventist HealthCare

Flu Season Visitor Policy

Effective: February 27, 2019

Temporary Visitor Restrictions

To keep all in our community safe and prevent the spread of flu, beginning Wednesday, Feb. 27, the following visitor restrictions will be implemented at all Adventist HealthCare hospitals:

  • Visiting children ages 12 years and younger will not be allowed in any area of the hospital or facility, except to see family members during end-of-life circumstances. In these cases, the children may be asked to wear masks.
  • Visitors exhibiting flu-like symptoms, such as fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose and muscle aches, will not be allowed to enter the hospital or healthcare facility.

This is a temporary measure to help prevent the spread of the flu virus, protect our patients, staff and the community. We will continue to monitor flu activity in the community and lift the restrictions when it is safe.

If you have further questions regarding the Visitor Policy, please contact our hospitals directly:

Help Stop the Flu!

Please remember to further prevent the spread of flu by getting a flu vaccine, washing your hands often with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, coughing/sneezing into your sleeve or tissue, and avoiding touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
