File Description: 

This document is for internal Duke Health use only. Please note these restrictions are subject to change as needed. Leadership will review and re-evaluate which tier we should be in for visitation on a weekly basis. The ultimate decision to move between Tiers will be made by DUHS Leadership and communicated through typical employee communication channels. Additional factors including evidence of hospital-acquired transmission of respiratory viruses or hospital capacity shortages related to respiratory viral illnesses may be used to determine the phase of visitations, as determined by DUHS Emergency Preparedness, Influenza Task Force, Infectious Diseases, and Operational Leaders.
