Cole Memorial Visitor Policy Change During Flu Season



A recent Pennsylvania Department of Health Advisory has determined that this influenza (flu) season has seen the highest number of flu cases reported per week since the 2009 pandemic. As a result, Cole Memorial Hospital is temporarily restricting visitations. The restriction will protect patients, visitors and staff from unnecessary exposure to the highly contagious flu virus.

Effective immediately, Cole Memorial is requesting that visitors postpone any visits to a hospitalized patient if they are experiencing signs or symptoms such as:

  • Runny nose
  • Fever
  • Cough
