Visitor Restrictions Lifted at Sinai and Northwest

We have good news if you are visiting Northwest or Sinai hospitals. Due to the current low level of H1N1 Flu in Maryland, the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene is recommending that hospitals return to their normal visitation policies. As a result, there are no longer restrictions on visiting loved ones in the hospital.

That said, please use our hand sanitizers located throughout our hospitals, and remember to wash your hands frequently. Individual units may have restrictions on visitors, as it is important for our patients to receive enough rest. If you have not received your seasonal flu or H1N1 vaccination, you can go to Google's Flu Shot Finder, type in your ZIP code, and a list of convenient locations and what they offer will pop up.
