For the past several weeks, the influenza positivity rate in Carroll County has been increasing along with other respiratory illnesses. In an effort to keep our families and friends safe, St. Anthony Regional Hospital is implementing Influenza Visitor Precautions effective Tuesday, January 3, 2023.

Healthy adults will still be allowed to visit, but we ask that nobody under the age of 18 visit at this time. Individuals with respiratory symptoms such as cough, congestion, sore throat, and/or fever should not visit the hospital other than as a patient.

Hand hygiene and vaccinations are the most effective way to prevent the spread of illnesses. Check with your medical provider, pharmacy, or clinic to ask questions or to arrange for your vaccine.
