Marlette Regional Hospital Initiates Visitor Restrictions During Flu Season

As a precautionary measure to help protect our patients, nursing home and hospice residents, staff/care providers, and community from contagious respiratory illnesses, like the cold and flu, visitor restrictions have been put in place at Marlette Regional Hospital. These restrictions will be in place now through the end of March 2018.

Marlette Regional Hospital is asking the public and their staff to please adhere to the following:

  • Wear a mask if you have a cough and are receiving services such as lab work, ER visit, x-rays, doctor visit, etc.
  • Unless seeking treatment, no hospital visitation from children under the age of 12 during the flu season. Children tend to get sick more often than adults and are often carriers without showing symptoms.
  • Do not visit patients, nursing home residents, nor hospice residents if you are ill and have any of the following symptoms:
    • Sore throat
    • Fever
    • Cough
    • Runny nose/sneezing
    • Body aches

Remember to wash your hands or use hand sanitizer routinely even when you are not feeling ill. Hand hygiene is the number one way to prevent the spread of germs.

Thank you in advance for helping to keep our communities healthy! For more information about Marlette Regional Hospital, please visit www.marletteregionalhospital.org.
