WREX: Local Health Care Facilities Remove Visitor Age Restrictions

ROCKFORD (WREX) – Flu cases are dropping and that means local healthcare facilities are easing up on visitor restrictions.

In cooperation with the Winnebago County Health Department, the following facilities have removed visitor restrictions and the masking requirements of unvaccinated healthcare staff:

  • OSF HealthCare Saint Anthony Medical Center
  • Mercyhealth
  • SwedishAmerican
  • The University of Illinois College of Medicine at Rockford
  • Crusader Community Health

The WCHD and the healthcare community remind people to stay home when they are not feeling well, especially if they are experiencing symptoms of the flu. People are also reminded to practice the three c’s, which are clean, cover, and contain, by cleaning hands often, covering coughs and staying home when sick.
