UR Medicine has put visitor restrictions in place at its hospitals as flu season swings into gear.
Restrictions are now in effect at Strong Memorial Hospital, Golisano Children’s Hospital, Wilmot Cancer Center and Highland Hospital.
The restrictions include:
- A maximum of two visitors plus one care giver in a patient’s room at any time.
- No visitors under the age of 14, with the exception of siblings visiting newborns in the maternity units.
- People with flu-like symptoms (e.g., fever, cough, sore throat, body aches) are asked not to visit hospitalized patients until they are symptom-free for 24 hours.
Hospitals officials say anyone with questions should speak with their patient’s nurse or call 585-275-7716.
Rochester General Hospital has also put similar restrictions in place.
