Visitors restricted at FHN

FREEPORT – FHN Memorial Hospital in Freeport has enacted visitor restrictions in accordance with an Illinois Department of Public Health recommendation.

Restrictions include:

• No visitors under the age of 18 (including the OB unit, to protect our youngest patients)

• Only two visitors per patient at one time.

• Visitors with fever, cough, or sore throat should not visit. If they must, masks are required (and will be provided).

• Patients hospitalized for flu may have visitors only when necessary for emotional well-being or care.

Respiratory hygiene/cough etiquette (cover coughs, tissue disposal immediately after use, hand sanitizer) must be followed at all times

The restrictions apply to all hospital patients, including OB and Pediatrics. Visitors should check with the nurse on duty if they have any questions.

All medical services remain available to patients of all ages. Go to fhn.org/fhnow for more information.
