IMPORTANT ALERT Visitor Restrictions In Place In an effort to prevent the spread of the flu and to protect the health of patients, families and staff, we have put in the following temporary visitor restrictions in place: Children 12 and under are not allowed to visit patients in our seven hospitals, The Heritage, Peabody and Juliette Manor, this does not apply to outpatient or clinic services, other ThedaCare hospital visitors are encouraged to mask and wash/sanitize hands when they enter our buildings. One exception to the restriction is siblings, who do not have cold or flu symptoms, may visit the OB unit. Unit leaders can make exceptions to child visits on a case-by-case basis in extraordinary circumstances. The restrictions will be assessed on a regular basis as new information about the influenza season becomes available.
