LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Indiana University Health Hospitals are responding to the spread of the coronavirus in the state, putting in place tighter visitor restrictions at their locations in Lafayette, Frankfort, and Monticello.

Until further notice, the following visitation restrictions will be in place.

  • Visitors are restricted to 4 designated caregivers over the age of 18 at IU Health Arnett Hospital. Visitors are restricted to 2 designated caregivers over the age of 18 at IU Health Frankfort Hospital and IU Health White Memorial Hospital.
  • No visitors under 18 years of age unless they are seeking medical care or are the parents of pediatric patients.
  • Only healthy adults should visit:
    • Visitors who have flu-like symptoms, such as fever, cough, chills or muscle aches, will not be allowed to visit patients.
    • If you have been recently exposed to someone with the flu/coronavirus, or flu-like symptoms, please stay home.
  • Additional restrictions may be in place in the patient area you are visiting.
  • In addition to the hospitals, we are asking patients to limit the number of people accompanying them to the emergency room, outpatient surgery waiting rooms and physician offices.
  • Visitors should wash their hands or use hand sanitizer often.

“We are taking these additional measures out of an abundance of caution in an effort to limit the risk of infection in our hospitals,” said Jim Bien, MD, Chief Medical Officer and VP Quality and Patient Safety for IU Health Arnett Physicians. “We ask that visitors adhere to these restrictions so that we can maintain the safest possible environment for patients, visitors and our team members.”

The hospitals ask if you have questions, contact the hospital before they plan to visit.
