Danville VA Medical Center to implement influenza restrictions
DANVILLE - in response to concerns about influenza activity this season, the VA Illiana Health Care System will implement temporary visitation and youth volunteer restrictions beginning December 1.
Under the restrictions, no one under the age of 18 may accompany or visit veterans, veterans will not be able to have more than two visitors, visitors who are sick are asked to avoid the Medical Center, and veterans seeking care with flu symptoms must ask a staff member for a mask. Officials say the restrictions are for the Danville VA Medical Center.
The restrictions includes visitors to inpatients, and family members and friends who accompany patients to appointments and outpatient services in Danville.
