Temporary visitor restrictions and extended hours at Urgent Care and After Hours Care are instituted by Alliance Community Hospital to address flu

Northeast Ohio and Stark County are currently experiencing a significant increase in the number of influenza cases. If you or a loved one is experiencing flu like symptoms such as fever, chills, headache, vomiting, cough, sore throat, muscle aches or diarrhea, we are advising patients to seek care at either our Louisville Family Care Urgent Care or ACH After Hours Care in Alliance.

Family Care Urgent Care center in Louisville is open Monday - Friday from 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM, and on the weekends from 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM. 

After Hours Care in Alliance is open Monday - Friday from 4:00 PM - 9:00 PM, and open on the weekends from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM. 

Due to increased influenza activity in the community, Alliance Community Hospital is implementing a temporary restriction on the visitation policy that limits visitors to no more than two visitors at a time. Additionally, for the safety of our patients and children, individuals 14 years and younger are discouraged from visiting at this time.

You should not visit patients if you are ill or experiencing flu like symptoms.

ACH recommends these steps to decrease the risk of getting influenza: get a flu vaccine, practice good hand hygiene, avoid others who are ill, and if you are sick, stay away from other to decrease their chances of getting sick.

  • According to the CDC, most people with the flu have mild illness and do not need medical care or antiviral drugs. If you get sick with flu symptoms such as fever, chills, headache, vomiting, cough, sore throat, muscle aches or diarrhea, in most cases, it is recommended you stay home and avoid contact with other people.
  • If you have the flu, stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone (without the use of a fever-reducing medicine) except to get medical care or other necessities. While ill it is recommended you stay home from work, school, travel, shopping, social events and public gatherings.
  • If you are in a high-risk group (including young children, people 65 and older, pregnant women and people with certain medical conditions) and develop flu symptoms, it’s best for you to contact your doctor. Health care providers will determine whether influenza testing and treatment are needed.
