SPARTANBURG, S.C. - Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System is monitoring the flu and respiratory illnesses in the Upstate. There are no restrictions in place right now, but SRHS has implemented visitation recommendations.

The hospital is asking anyone with the following flu like symptoms to re-schedule their visit:
  • Fever
  • Nausea
  • Breathing Difficulty
  • General Aches
Also, anyone in the following categories should visit the hospital only if necessary:
  • Pregnant Women
  • Those with Weakened Immune Systems
  • Those with Lung Conditions or Breathing Difficulties
  • Children Under 18 and Older Adults
SRHS implemented a flu vaccination policy two years ago. To protect its patients and staff from the flu, the hospital encourages all employees to get a flu shot. Those that do not, are required to wear a surgical/isolation mask whenever they are within six feet of patients during flu season.
