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, we are maintaining a NO VISITOR policy, with a few exceptions:

One designated support person will be allowed for pediatric patients and other patients who require support
One designated support person will be allowed during 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 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 lowering in our state and region, these restrictions serve as a preventive measure for the virus.
