Elk Regional Issues Flu Update

Updated 2/14/13 at 10 a.m.

The number of new flu cases we're seeing each week has dropped significantly! However, in the interests of caution, our visitation restrictions remain in place at the Health Center, in our Maternity Unit, and at Pinecrest Manor. Our Infection Control team continues to carefully monitor the flu situation.

Current Visitation Restrictions:
  • Only immediate adult family members may visit patients at the Health Center or residents at Pinecrest Manor. No children under the age of 18 should be brought to the facility.
  • Visitation to the Health Center's Maternity Unit is restricted to parents and grandparents ONLY. This means that no other family members, including children, regardless of their relationship to the patient, may visit.
If you have any questions about these restrictions, please call the Public Relations Department at (814) 788-8532 or (814) 788-8832.
