Temporary visitor restrictions mean:  

  • Only essential adults (18 or older) will be allowed to visit patients.
  • Visitors who have flu-like symptoms, such as fever, cough, chills or muscle aches, will not be allowed to visit patients.
  • Patients with flu-like symptoms will be asked to wear a surgical or isolation mask.

IU Health recognizes the role that family plays in a patient’s recovery. Exceptions to the policy may be made under special circumstances.
