Flu Season Visitor Restrictions Take Effect Jan. 14

Kaiser Permanente is committed to the safety of our members, patients, and visitors while at our facilities.

Due to the increased prevalence of influenza in our region, we will be implementing our flu season visitor policy at our Manteca and Modesto hospitals beginning Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2020. At that time, hospital visitors will be limited to persons over 14 years of age, and those without visible cold or flu symptoms.The restrictions will remain in effect until the end of flu season, and do not apply to our outpatient medical office buildings.

Hospital patients are among those at the highest risk of catching influenza, and the disease can be deadly to the elderly, the very young, and those with compromised immune systems. Children 14 and younger are less likely to practice proper hand hygiene, or to indicate when they are feeling sick, especially early in the illness when it is most contagious.

Children 14 and younger may remain under adult supervision in one of our family waiting lounges, or in public areas of the facility, such as our cafeterias or lobbies.

Protect yourself this flu season! Flu shots are still available at no cost to Kaiser Permanente members – contact your primary doctor, or visit any of our Injection Clinics (no appointment is needed). To reduce your risk of catching the flu or cold, wash your hands often, cover your coughs, and get plenty of rest.

We thank you for your cooperation in helping to protect all of our members and patients this flu season.
