All Beaumont Health hospitals are experiencing high volumes of patients with respiratory viral illnesses, predominantly influenza.
As a result, visitation restrictions are now in place at Beaumont’s eight hospitals. For the safety of our patients and staff: Visitation by children younger than 13 years of age is limited to extraordinary circumstances, such as severe illness of a parent or sibling, or end-of-life situations.
In addition, Beaumont’s Infection Prevention and Epidemiology team strongly urges getting a flu shot. Friends and family of patients should avoid visiting our hospital campuses if they have cold or flu symptoms, such as:
- sore throat
- runny/stuffy nose
- muscle aches
- a weak or compromised immune system
