Winona Health’s visitor limitations due to influenza are still in effect for the hospital, Lake Winona, Adith Miller and Roger Metz Manors until further notice. Visitors in those areas are limited to immediate family only.
These visitor limitations are in place to minimize patients’ and residents’ potential exposure to the influenza virus. In addition, family members who are coughing or showing other respiratory symptoms also are asked not to visit their relatives in the hospital or nursing home.
Patients and family members coming to the clinic for appointments who are coughing, sneezing or seeking care for respiratory symptoms are asked to wear a mask. Masks are available at the hospital and clinic main entrances.
If you have additional questions about the flu, contact your primary healthcare provider or the Winona Health Urgent Care Clinic at 420 E. Sarnia. Winona Health’s Urgent Care Clinic is open Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday through Sunday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. To check current Urgent Care wait times, visit: www.winonahealth.org/uc.
