As flu season begins in Guthrie’s service region, all Guthrie hospitals have initiated visitor restrictions effective Dec. 1, 2017, to help minimize flu exposure for our patients.
Visitor restrictions include:
- Children under the age of 12
- Anyone exhibiting the following symptoms within the past 24 hours:
- Sore throat
- Runny nose
- Nasal congestion
Masks and hand sanitizer are available for all other patients, visitors and employees at the entrances of each hospital. We would like to thank the community for its cooperation in this important initiative to keep our patients and staff safe and healthy this flu season.
