Precautions

Mary Bird Perkins is working closely with federal, state, and local health officials along with our hospital partners to align with their rules and restrictions to ensure every necessary step is taken to protect the health of our patients, visitors and team members.

Please remember the most important things that you can do today to impact your health and the health of your love ones is to wash your hands and cover your cough. Respiratory viruses are spread through coughing and sneezing near others and by picking up germs on surfaces and touching our eyes, nose and mouth.

Learn more from the CDC on how you can protect yourself from COVID-19. Many of the precautions are identical to how patients are educated on avoiding the flu.
