WORTHINGTON - In order to protect patients and employees from influenza, Sanford Worthington is putting visitor restrictions in place effective immediately at Sanford Worthington Medical Center.

The restrictions include:

  • Only immediate family members, patient spouse/significant other/partner, parent or grandparent, or siblings without symptoms (fever, chills, cough, sore throat, runny nose, body aches) will be allowed to visit.

Staff will be working with our patients to help maintain important family connections in other ways during their hospitalization.    

Influenza vaccinations are still being offered to the general public in all of Sanford Health’s primary care and walk-in clinics.

A notice will be sent to the community once these restrictions are no longer in affect.
