Regional West Medical Center: Limit Visitation Due to Widespread Respiratory Illness

SCOTTSBLUFF – Regional West Medical Center is temporarily limiting visitor access due to widespread respiratory illness throughout the region. Visitors under the age of 18 will not be allowed in the hospital until further notice, unless they are a patient or parent of a patient. In addition, any person with a fever, cough, or other flu-like symptom should not visit the hospital for social reasons.

Visitor restrictions were put in place based on public health and Regional West Community Health surveillance that showed a large increase in school absences in Scotts Bluff County this week.
