Visitor Restrictions During Flu Season

As of April 20, 2018 at 6 a.m., the flu-related visitation restrictions have been lifted.

What are flu-related visitation restrictions?

When there is an increase of severe illness from the flu, the University of Chicago Medicine will make temporary changes to our visitor policy for the safety of our patients, visitors and staff.

During the flu season, visitors, especially children, may not know they have the flu. They may not be showing flu symptoms and can easily pass the flu on to others. Your loved one is in the hospital to get better and can get very sick from visitors who may only have mild flu symptoms.
