Temporary Visitor Restrictions on Children Under 12 Lifted April 19

Due to a decrease in the number of influenza cases, visitor restrictions for inpatient areas and waiting rooms at UNC Hospitals (Chapel Hill, Hillsborough and Wakebrook campuses) will end on Friday, April 19. Please note that due to continued circulation of RSV, restrictions remain in place for the Newborn Critical Care Center, Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, 5 Children’s/Intermediate Care Unit and Bone Marrow Transplant Unit at UNC Hospitals.

To protect our patients and colleagues, it is important to continue to screen all children visitors for symptoms of a respiratory virus (e.g., cough or sore throat with fever) and exclude any guests and family members with symptoms from visiting the hospital and our clinics.
