Due to a rise in influenza activity, Parkview Health is taking action to protect patients, staff and the public. On Thursday (March 21) all Parkview Health hospitals implemented several restrictions for visitors and patrons.
Until further notice all visitors at a Parkview facility who come for evaluation and treatment who have cold or flu-like symptoms will be provided with a mask and asked to wear the mask while in public areas. In addition, visitors under 18 years of age will not be allowed to visit patients, as well as visitors of any age who have flu-like symptoms. Visitors will also be limited to two essential adults (at least 18 years of age) per patient.
Parkview officials say they appreciate the public's understanding during this time, and encourage everyone to take the proper precautions, including getting a flu shot, staying home if you're sick, washing your hands, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your upper sleeve, and wearing a mask if needed.
The restrictions were made at the recommendation of the Fort Wayne-Allen County Department of Health and Parkview’s Infection Prevention team. The restrictions will remain in place until further notice.
