Due to the Pertussis outbreak in Ogle County and increase in positive cases in Lee County, KSB Hospital has issued a TEMPORARY VISITOR RESTRICTION until further notice.
The following restrictions will be implemented:
– No visitors less than 18 years of age
– Limit number of visitors to two per patient at any given time
– Those who have been coughing or having coughing fits for a week or more may have pertussis and are asked not to visit.
Since pertussis can be very dangerous to babies, older children, pregnant women, and those who have lung disease or cancer, we are being proactive in helping to protect our patients.
