- For patient safety, anyone 5 years old & under will be asked to wear a mask during the visitation session.
- No visitation by anyone who is ill with any of the following symptoms: coughing, sneezing, runny nose, fever, diarrhea, etc.

- Siblings who have been adequately immunized against the flu may visit the maternity units. Documentation of flu vaccination must be presented at the time of the first visitation session.
