Health Tip of the Week
Many children in the Philadelphia area are sick with flu. And it’s not just in our region — this flu season is hitting hard nationwide.
At Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and across our entire Care Network, we are prepared and ready to care for every child who needs us. We are taking many precautions to ensure the safety of our patients and families, which is why we have limited visitor procedures in effect.
If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to call your pediatrician’s office. That is your best resource, unless your child exhibits the severe symptoms listed below that warrant a trip to the emergency room.
