Dell Children’s Medical Center began enforcing its flu season protocol at the end of October and will continue until March 2016.
To keep patients safe during flu season, all visitors must pass a screening process at the hospital’s main entrance to ensure that they are healthy enough to visit. In addition, the hospital will not allow visitors younger than 13. Children ages 13 to 17 may visit patients if they are a patient’s sibling and they pass the health screening.
No one, of any age, should visit the hospital if he or she has respiratory illness symptoms such as a runny nose, body aches or fever.
