Dec 19, 2019 | Tags: influenza, notice, CDC

Please Note: Influenza has become widespread in our community. Patients coming into the Coal Country Community Health Centers and Sakakawea Medical Center for fever, chills, body aches, sore throat or cough are asked to wear a mask. Masks and alcohol hand wash are located at all main entrances to our facilities. If you cannot find one, please ask staff for assistance.

We are asking that if you are experiencing fever, chills, body aches, sore throat or cough along with any exposure to Influenza, that you please reconsider visiting patients in the hospital. If you choose to come and visit patients in the hospital while having any of the symptoms listed, please wear a mask for your own protection and for the protection of the patients and staff working at the hospital.

If you feel that you may have Influenza, please seek treatment immediately to be tested. It is important to remember to keep children home from school and daycare if they have these symptoms or have tested positive for Influenza recently.
