Cone Health Begins Flu Restrictions

Cone Health joins other health networks in restricting young visitors due to an increased level of flu in the area.

 

Greensboro—Cone Health joins other regional health systems in restricting visitors age 12 and younger due to a steady increase in flu in our community and in our hospitals. Effective Jan. 8, at 7 a.m., children age 12 and younger will be restricted from Cone Health hospitals. These are Alamance Regional Medical Center, Annie Penn Hospital, Cone Health Behavioral Health Hospital, The Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital, Wesley Long Hospital and Women’s Hospital. 

Restrictions do not apply to children 12 and younger who seek emergency care or are patients. Restrictions can be lifted by care providers should special circumstances exist, such as the need to visit a dying family member. 

Cone Health is part of a team of regional health systems partnering to limit the spread of the flu. This team includes Atrium Health, Caromont Health, Novant Health, Randolph Health and Wake Forest Baptist Health. All these health systems are participating in visitor restrictions.
