St. Francis announces restricted visitor guidelines

Beginning Friday, Dec. 20, 2019, St. Francis implemented restricted visitor guidelines to protect all patients and staff due to influenza. St. Francis implements visitor restrictions when the Minnesota Department of Health determines that influenza is widespread across the state.

Visiting guidelines:

  • - Children under the age of five (5) are asked not to visit patients.
  • - Visitors who are sick should refrain from visiting patients in the hospital.
  • - Compassionate exceptions may be considered based on a patient’s critical condition/prognosis.
  • - If you or your child has a cough or sore throat, please wear a mask while in our building.

At all times, please cover your cough. Please wash your hands or use the antibacterial hand cleanser we provide throughout hospital facilities.
