EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY - Patient Visitation Restriction - All Patient Rooms & Patient Units

Posted: Friday, January 5, 2018

Due to increased influenza activity in our area, to keep our patients, visitors, and staff safe, DeKalb Health has implemented PATIENT VISITOR RESTRICTIONS FOR THOSE UNDER THE AGE OF 18 OR THOSE WHO ARE ACUTELY ILL. Only 2 adult visitors, 18 years old and older, per patient will be allowed at one time. Exceptions to age may be made on a case by case basis in special circumstances. The restrictions will be lifted when influenza activity and subsequent transmission risk decreases.
