Flu changes visitation policy at St. Luke's

Published January 22. 2013 05:01PM

Due to a community-wide surge in influenza and flu-like illnesses, all six St. Luke's University Health Network Hospitals are instituting a uniform hospital visitation policy as follows until further notice.

The visiting restrictions are as follows:

No visitors 18 years of age and under

No visitors with any symptoms of flu-like illness (fever, cough, sore throat, body aches)

The new restrictions are effective immediately and are designed to protect the hospitals' patients and staff.

Visitor restrictions are in effect at St. Luke's Hospital - Allentown Campus; St. Luke's Hospital - Anderson Campus; St. Luke's University Hospital - Bethlehem; St. Luke's Hospital - Miners Campus in Coaldale; St. Luke's Hospital - Quakertown Campus; and St. Luke's Hospital - Warren Campus in Phillipsburg, N.J.

The visitor restriction is temporary and is being instituted in hospitals and long-term care facilities throughout the Lehigh Valley to help inhibit the spread of influenza as recommended by the Allentown and Bethlehem Health Bureaus.
