Visiting Patients During Viral Season
Please note, our viral season guest policy will begin on November 14, 2016.
To protect all patients, please make sure that no more than two healthy guests, in addition to parents or guardians, are coming to see the patient. All guests, including siblings, must be at least 12 years of age.
Join our commitment to prevent the spread of viral infection to patients. All Lurie Children’s physicians and staff receive a flu shot to promote patient safety. We highly recommend that your family and guests also get a flu shot to stay healthy.
Please remember always to wash your hands before entering and leaving the patient’s room.
