Flu 'Badge Buddies' Can Be Removed March 31

Thank you for all the efforts this winter season helping keep our patients, visitors and fellow staff safe.

Beginning Monday, March 31, the medical center will no longer require the green and orange flu ID badge accessories to be worn. In addition, unvaccinated personnel will no longer have to wear isolation masks.

Badges should be discarded in a blue recycling bin or a regular trash container as they cannot be used again next season.

Influenza activity in Los Angeles County continues to decline, with a positive influenza rate of only 2.9 percent being reported by area laboratories to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health as of March 14. At the peak of the season, an estimated 27 percent of people admitted to Los Angeles County emergency departments with influenza-like illness tested positive for the flu.

Typically, influenza season begins in the fall and ends March 31, and this year appears to be no exception, according to the Department of Public Health.
