Visitation Restrictions

Due to significant RSV in our community, the NICU, PICU and Children’s Hospital are currently restricting visitation for children under the age of 12.


For most otherwise healthy adults and children, RSV symptoms are much like a bad cold.  For very young patients or those with preexisting conditions like asthma or other illnesses, RSV can be very serious and even life threatening.


Help prevent the spread of RSV to Children's Hospital, PICU and NICU patients by not visiting if you are sick and by restricting visitation of younger siblings, family and friends.
