Alert: Hospital Visitor Restrictions In Place

ALERT: Information/Updates

Visitors to: Canton-Potsdam Hospital, Gouverneur Hospital, and Massena Hospital

Due to a large number of flu cases across northern New York, St. Lawrence Health System has initiated the following visitor limitations:

  • Minimize the number of visitors in a room to 2. (Parents/caregivers are not counted as visitors.)
  • Visitors should be 12 years of age or older. (Exceptions will be made for healthy children.)
  • If you have a sore throat, fever, runny nose, cough, or other flu-like symptom, reconsider visiting until you are well.

These restrictions are being implemented as part of a coordinated effort involving all hospitals in the St. Lawrence Health System to minimize flu exposure to patients. Thank you for helping us keep our patients/your loved ones healthy.

It’s not too late to get your flu shot if you haven’t already received one.
