The following hospitals and health systems have implemented visitor restrictions to protect patients during the peak of flu season. We will continue to update the list as hospitals are added or policies are revised, but it is always best to call ahead before visiting. For more information about flu safety, especially in healthcare settings, and on how you can be a good visitor during flu season, visit this page, sponsored by the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology.
