WILMINGTON, NC – Because of the decrease in the level of influenza in the community, New Hanover Regional Medical Center is removing the visiting restrictions placed on children. This change is effective immediately.
If you have flu-like symptoms, do not visit the hospital. It is always a good idea to stay home if you are sick and avoid public places if possible. The care teams at NHRMC suggest that if you have flu symptoms please consider calling, using FaceTime or Skype, or sending notes or cards to patients.
Although flu levels are declining, it is important for the community to stay vigilant against the spread of the disease to prevent a recurrence. New Hanover Regional Medical Center encourages everyone to get a seasonal flu vaccine if you have not already done so. Vaccines are available in our community and are critical to preventing another outbreak.
