OSF Little Company of Mary Implement Visitor Restrictions in Response to the Spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Mar 15, 2020 - To protect patients, family members and staff due to the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), we are asking the public to limit visits to the hospital.

OSF HealthCare Little Company of Mary Medical Center, in conjunction with the Cook County Health Department, has issued the following temporary visitor restrictions during continued widespread seasonal influenza activity and the global outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19). In order to protect our patients and community, NO visitors will be allowed at OSF HealthCare Little Company of Mary Medical Center until further notice. Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis. The changes are effective immediately.

 

We understand these restrictions may impose an inconvenience to some families, but it’s 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 preventative measure for the virus.

 

For more ways to protect against the spread of COVID-19 and seasonal influenza, and for the latest updates and guidance in this rapidly evolving situation, please visit the websites of the Centers for Disease Control and PreventionCook County Public Health and Illinois Department of Public Health.
