DUE TO FLU: Inova Loudoun Hospital Institutes Temporary Changes to Visitation Policy

Due to increased flu-like illness activity Inova Loudoun Hospital will institute temporary changes to their visitation policy effective Friday, February 14, 2014.


These temporary measures apply to all visitors until further notice:



No visitors under the age of 16
No visitors with any symptoms of influenza-like illness
Limit of two visitors at a time for each patient
Visitors may be issued masks for use while visiting and asked to wash hands frequently
For Women's and Children's, Adult Critical Care, and Oncology patients additional measures may apply
A patient care companion is not a visitor, and is allowed to stay with the patient


"These temporary measures will help protect against influenza infection of the most vulnerable among us, including inpatients with compromised immune systems as well as our caregivers," observed Loring Flint, MD, Inova's Chief Medical Officer." We appreciate everyone's consideration and cooperation as we work together to assure the health and safety of our community during flu season.

Inova Alexandria, Inova Fair Oaks Hospital and Inova Fairfax Medical Campus initiated the visitation limitations in January.
