Temporary Visitor Restrictions


For the safety of our patients and colleagues, Beverly, Addison Gilbert and BayRidge Hospitals have made temporary changes to our in-patient hospital visitor policy in light of the severe flu season. As of Monday, February 5 all Lahey Health acute care hospitals are adhering to this modified policy.

We ask that people meeting the following criteria do not visit admitted patients:

  • Anyone with the following symptoms:
    • Fever
    • Cough
    • Sore Throat
    • Runny Nose
  • Children ages 13 and under (with the exception of well siblings of newborns visiting in a private room on the mother/baby unit)

This change applies to inpatients only and not to our outpatient clinics.

These measures are designed to protect our patients, their families and our staff. Children are frequent carriers of flu and may unknowingly infect others. Our top priority is the safety of our patients and community. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
