What to do if you are not feeling well

We are screening everyone for flu-like symptoms!

When coming to St. Joe’s it’s important that everyone washes their hands frequently to stop the spread of illness. Hand sanitizing stations are at all of our main entrances and throughout our buildings.

There is currently no change to our visiting hours or policies.

However, we are actively screening for Febrile Respiratory Illness. This means when you come to the hospital you will be asked if you have a new or worse cough or shortness of breath and feeling feverish. If you answer yes to any of these you will be asked to put on a mask to prevent you from spreading the illness to other patients, visitors and our staff.

Knowing your health care options helps everyone to make sure that those patients with the most serious conditions are seen quickly in our Emergency Department.

fluIf you are experiencing flu-like symptoms including fever, cough or shortness of breath, please contact your doctor’s office to determine whattype of care you need.
