The number of regional influenza cases has shown a significant decline over the past weeks. As a result, OSF HealthCare St. Francis Hospital & Medical Group, is discontinuing their request for the public to limit visits to the hospital.

The December 2018 request had strongly encouraged people under 18 or anyone with flu-like symptoms to avoid entering patient floors of the hospital.

If there is another increase in positive influenza cases in the community, OSF St. Francis Hospital may again request the public limit visits. Visitors are advised to check the hospital website – www.osfstfrancis.org – for further updates before arriving at the hospital.

“We want to thank our patients and visitors for their understanding and patience during our restriction period,” said Lindsey Stearns, Community Relations Coordinator at OSF St. Francis.
