University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics is now advising a visitor limit because of the high number of influenza cases in our community.
We strongly recommend limiting visitors to two at a time per patient.
Please encourage visitors to keep children at home.
If visitors have any of the following symptoms, they should stay home:
- Sore throat
- Body aches
Exceptions may be considered on a case-by-case basis by staff. Symptomatic visitors should be offered a facemask.
For more information, contact the Program of Hospital Epidemiology at 6-1606 or pager 3158.
