Restrictions in place for children visiting inpatients

All Corewell Health East hospitals are experiencing high volumes of patients with respiratory viral illnesses, especially RSV and influenza.

As a result, effective Monday, Nov. 7 at 8 a.m., children who are 5 years old or younger may not visit patients at Corewell Health East hospital campuses unless there are extraordinary circumstances, such as severe illness of a parent or sibling, or end-of-life situations.

Everyone who is age 5 and older, regardless of vaccination status, must wear a mask that covers the nose and mouth while in our facilities. We ask that everyone coming to our facilities self-screen for COVID-19, cold and flu symptoms before entering. Please continue directing patients and their families to  for the most current visitation information.
