Stop the spread of germs

  • For the safety of our patients, we encourage you to clean your hands when you visit. See A Guide to Clean Hands for information on protecting yourself and your loved ones.
  • If you’re sick, it's best to wait and visit your loved one when you’re feeling better. If you must visit and you’re coughing or sneezing, consider wearing a mask to protect your loved one.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, and then discard the tissue. If you don’t have a tissue, sneeze or cough into your upper sleeve or elbow.
  • Clean your hands frequently with soap and water or hand sanitizer, especially after coughing or sneezing.
