Baltimore, MD - Apr. 10, 2019 :

Sinai Hospital Statement:

Protecting our patients, visitors and employees is our responsibility and highest priority.

With a confirmed case of measles in our area, LifeBridge Health has taken the precautionary measure to change our visitor policy to no hospital visitors under age 14.

Measles is highly contagious among people who are not vaccinated, so we made this proactive decision to protect the health and safety of our patients, visitors and employees.

We are working in close coordination with state and local health officials and will continue to reassess this policy, as appropriate.
