Print Story | Email Story

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — In the wake of widespread influenza reported across Massachusetts, Berkshire Health Systems has implemented visitor changes to help reduce the potential spread of the flu.

The visitor restrictions apply to Berkshire Medical Center, Fairview Hospital and the Hillcrest and North Adams campuses of BMC.

Individuals should not visit patients at any of these facilities if they are under 18 years of age or they are ill or are experiencing flu or flu-like symptoms. These symptoms include fever, chills, body aches, cough or fatigue.

These visitor restrictions will be in place until the flu season wanes, and are meant to protect the patients, loved ones and staff of all of these facilities.

For more information about influenza, please visit the Centers for Disease Control website, which can be found here.
