The Queen’s Health Systems' Response to Influenza and Novel Coronavirus
There are currently no cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) at The Queen's Health Systems.
We have implemented the following measures to address influenza and COVID-19. As always, our goal is to keep our patients, visitors, staff and providers healthy and safe.
For patients: Hospitals and clinics are conducting routine travel screening of patients at points of entry for possible Coronavirus infection. If a patient screens positive (symptoms + travel to Wuhan, China or exposure), rapid masking and isolation is implemented until further evaluation and consultation with the Department of Health is completed.
For visitors: Temperature screening at points of entry to our patient care areas has been implemented in some of our hospitals in response to increased influenza cases. People with a high temperature or flu symptoms will be asked not to visit patient units. This screening mirrors the screening taking place at some airports for COVID-19. The enhanced precautions for influenza include restricting visitors under the age of 12 in whom cough etiquette is difficult to control. We continue to recommend flu vaccination for the unvaccinated. We ask all who enter our hospital to cooperate with our screening for respiratory virus illnesses during this period of active flu in the community and while COVID-19 cases are being identified on the U.S. Mainland and in other countries.
We are four hospitals, 70 health care centers and labs, and more than 1,500 affiliated physicians and providers statewide.
