Flu Season Visitor Restrictions
Friday, December 21, 2018
The New York State Department of Health (DOH) has issued visitation restriction guidelines during this influenza season. These guidelines are being observed by Ellis Medicine/Bellevue until they are formally lifted by the DOH. For the health and safety of our patients, and to minimize our patients’ infection risks, during this influenza season the following visitation restrictions are in place.
- Children under the age of 12 will not be permitted in patient care areas (patient rooms and patient hallways). This includes the sibling of newborns babies.
- Please limit visitation to two (2) visitors at a time.
- Individuals with respiratory symptoms (fever, sore throat, cough, shortness of breath), rash, and /or diarrhea should not visit.
We apologize for any difficulty or inconvenience this may cause but thank you for your cooperation and participation in abiding by the Hospital’s visitation policy.
