In an effort to prevent the spread of flu, WVU Medicine is reminding visitors to avoid visiting patients if they are displaying symptoms, such as fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headaches, chills, or fatigue.

Visiting hours at J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital are 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. All visitors are required to register and obtain a visitor’s badge before entering patient areas. The registration desk is on the first floor, east lobby of Ruby.

Visitors will be limited to two per patient at any given time. Children under the age of 12 are discouraged from visiting the hospital.

All visitors are encouraged to wash their hands frequently.

Special circumstances may occasionally occur when the rules may be waived.
