OSF St. Joseph Requesting No Visitors

Mar 16, 2020 - To protect patients, family members and staff during this time of increased seasonal flu activity and the spread of COVID-19, we are asking the public not to visit hospitalized patients.

In alignment with the Governor’s declaration to shelter in place, we will be going to a NO VISITOR policy on Saturday, March 21 at 5 p.m. with a few exceptions:

One visitor will be allowed for pediatric patients
One visitor will be allowed for childbirth
Special considerations for end-of-life situations

These restrictions are an important step to keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible.

The health risks from cold and flu remain high. Limiting visitors to our hospitalized patients will keep them safe while in our care. While the number of cases of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID 19) are still low in our state and region, these restrictions will also serve as a preventive measure for the virus.
