As the number of flu cases in Delaware continues to rise, Bayhealth is enacting a temporary flu visitation policy.

Starting today, guests under the age of 16 are discouraged from visiting anyone at Bayhealth Hospital, Kent Campus and Bayhealth Milford Memorial. Visitation to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Bayhealth Hospital, Kent Campus is currently restricted to parents, guardians and grandparents. Visitation exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis.

In addition, we ask that anyone experiencing flu-like symptoms to avoid visiting someone at the hospital at this time.

Flu-like symptoms include fever/chills, body aches, sore throat, cough, headache and diarrhea. “We are always driven to protect our patients,” said Infection Prevention Manager Kelly Gardner. “This temporary flu visitation policy is being enacted to protect our patients from getting the flu or other illnesses. We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding. Our main goal is to keep our patients and our visitors safe.”

If you have flu-related symptoms, and are seeking medical treatment at Bayhealth, please use the items found at our respiratory etiquette stations, including hand sanitizer, face masks and tissues.

Please continue to monitor this site for any updates to this temporary flu visitation policy.
