With flu cases in Illinois declining, Memorial Health System’s three hospitals – Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital in Lincoln, Memorial Medical Center in Springfield and Taylorville Memorial Hospital – have lifted their visitor restrictions.

For the safety of patients and their families, the hospitals in late January limited inpatients hospital visits to two visitors per patient at one time and said visitors should be limited to people who are at least 18 years old and showed no sign of illness. The health system also encouraged those accompanying outpatients at Memorial facilities to consider these same recommendations.

In lifting the restrictions, the health system noted that influenza activity throughout Illinois had decreased and that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention listed Illinois’ flu activity as “regional” and no longer at “widespread.”
