North Shore Health announces visit limitations

Nov 05, 2020 09:04AM ● By Editor

From North Shore Health - November 5, 2020

Due to the sharp increase in community spread of COVID-19 in Cook County, effective immediately, visitation to North Shore Health is temporarily suspended until further notice.  

Current Essential Caregivers with North Shore Living will continue to have access to their residents.  Compassionate visits in both the Hospital and North Shore Living will be allowed in specific circumstances by prior arrangements.  If a compassionate visit is being requested, the Nursing staff at the Hospital or North Shore Living, as appropriate, should be contacted.  Emergency Department patients will be allowed to have one individual with them during their visit if clinically appropriate.      

We deeply appreciate the sacrifices made to limit the impact of COVID-19 in our community and keep our residents, patients and employees safe.   Each of us looks forward to the day when we can welcome families and friends back into North Shore Health and enjoy each other’s smiles.  

Thank you for being partners with us in fighting the COVID-19 virus.
