As a result of the declining number of flu cases seen over the past few weeks, the visitation restriction imposed at The Foley Center, Cannon Memorial Hospital and Watauga Medical Center on February 24th has been lifted. 

"ARHS thanks community members for adhering to the visitation restrictions which have been in place the past couple of months," stated Dr. Danielle Mahaffey, Chief Physician Executive for ARHS. While the cases of flu have declined there are still a few cases in the area and we remind you of things you can do to prevent catching or spreading the virus, including:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it. After coughing or sneezing, wash or sanitize your hands.
  • If you don't have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not into your hands.
  • If you get sick with flu, stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to keep from making them sick.
  • Get the recommended seasonal flu vaccine.

Appalachian Regional Healthcare System is working diligently to prevent the spread of flu and appreciates any assistance the public can provide. For more information about the flu, visit www.flu.gov/ or www.cdc.gov/flu.
