UR Medicine Thompson Health Wednesday lifted flu-related visitor restrictions that had been in place since early January.

CANANDAIGUA – UR Medicine Thompson Health today lifted flu-related visitor restrictions that had been in place at both F.F. Thompson Hospital and the M.M. Ewing Continuing Care Center since early January.

It is now permissible for children 14 and under to visit, and there is no longer a limit on the number of visitors a patient or resident may have at any given time.

“As always, both associates and visitors are asked to remain vigilant about hand hygiene, to prevent the spread of germs,” according to Thompson. In addition, anyone displaying symptoms of possible illness is asked to refrain from visiting until they have been symptom-free for at least 24 hours.
