Children under 12 will be restricted to the first floor and common areas of the hospital unless they are patients, including the main lobby, the cafeteria and the dining room. They cannot be left unattended. Hospital staff requests children be left at home when people come to visit patients.
Anybody who has symptoms of illness such as fever, headache, sore throat, body aches, congestion or cough should not visit the hospital unless requiring hospital services. Patients with symptoms also will be required to wear a mask and wash hands frequently.
