We ask all visitors to use our hand hygiene stations when they enter and and exit our facilities, particularly if there is a reported outbreak. Learn more about visiting during an outbreak.


Respiratory illnesses are reported below as Scenarios A or B. 

  • Scenario A illnesses are respiratory illness outbreaks in which Influenza is known or suspected as cause.
  • Scenario B illnesses are respiratory illness outbreaks characterized by serious illness – while not Influenza, illness is more than “a bad cold” in many or most of those affected.

Gastrointestinal illnesses do not require Scenario classification.
