Flu Restrictions Lifted

Date: 03/09/17

The current level of influenza activity in Montana has lowered substantially and St. Peter’s has lifted its visitor restrictions related to the flu.

“We are not out of the woods yet,” cautions St. Peter’s Infectious Disease Physician Dr. Donald Skillman, who notes that influenza is commonly seen through the end of March. “The seasonal flu could pick back up at any time.”

To help stay healthy, people should continue to clean their hands often with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand cleaner; avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth; avoid close contact with people who are sick; practice good respiratory etiquette; ask others to cover their mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing; and sneeze into a sleeve rather than into your hands.
