OWINGS MILLS, Md. — LifeBridge Health lifted their ban on visitors under 14 years old following the recent measles cases reported in the Pikesville area.
This comes after the healthcare company cited confirmed case of measles in the area, which prompted them to make a decision to protect the health and safety of their patients, visitors and employees.
Now, after more than 14 days since the last confirmed measles case, they have decided to end the temporary visitor policy.
We made the proactive decision to protect the health and safety of our patients, visitors and employees, and continue to coordinate with state and local health officials to try to minimize the spread of this highly contagious illness.
LifeBridge owns four hospitals in Maryland including Northwest, Sinai, Levindale, and Carroll.
