Temporary Visitor Restrictions to Prevent Flu


Widespread Flu: What You Need to Know  
Flu activity is widespread across North Carolina and nationally. The H3N2 strain is making the flu season more severe. We urge you to get the flu shot if you haven’t already. It’s not too late. Read our Flu Shot Q&A.

To help prevent the spread of flu illness, Wake Forest Baptist has implemented temporary visitor restrictions.

  • Children age 12 and under may not visit patients.
  • Only healthy adult visitors and family members age 13 and older may visit patients.
