Sanford puts visitor restrictions in place to protect patients from influenza in Bemidji and Bagley

In order to protect patients, residents, staff and the community, Sanford Bemidji Medical Center, Sanford Bagley Medical Center, Sanford Bemidji WoodsEdge (Neilson Place, Trillium, WindSong), Sanford Baker Park and Sanford Senior Behavioral Health will be restricting visitors to limit the spread of influenza and other illnesses.

These restrictions are:

  • Visitors are limited to clergy and immediate family members, including:
    • Patient spouse or significant other
    • Parent or grandparent
    • Sibling (age 14 or older, must be well)
  • Only two visitors per patient at a time
  • No one who is ill (has symptoms of influenza, including fever or chills, muscle or body aches, sore throat, cough, stuffy nose, headache and fatigue) will be permitted to visit

These restrictions are effective until further notice. Administration and staff at Sanford thank the public for their willingness to help avoid the spread of illnesses.
