Riverview Health Implements Flu Restrictions

January 10, 2019

As the number of flu cases is increasing, Riverview Health is taking added precautions to protect its patients, families, staff members and community from unnecessary exposure to influenza. On Friday, January 11, Riverview Health will implement these temporary visitation restrictions:

  • No visitors with influenza-like illness, fever or cough.
  • No visitors under the age of 16, unless special arrangements are made.
  • No visitors except immediate family, partner or significant other.

As we work to provide a safe environment for our patients and staff, we apologize for any inconvenience this visitation restriction may cause. We will continue to monitor conditions and remove the restrictions as soon as it is safe to do so.
