River’s Edge Hospital advises on staying well during influenza season

The Minnesota Department of Health has stated that influenza is widespread throughout the state. River’s Edge is allowing patient visitors during this time with some restrictions. If you have a cough or cold please wear a mask during your visit.

If you are sick, stay home. Urgent Care is open 12-8 Monday- Friday and 8a-8p Saturday and Sunday.

You can stay well this winter by following these suggestions:
· Wash your hands thoroughly and often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
· Cover your cough, preferable by coughing into your sleeve
· Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu
· Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread that way!
