Visitor restrictions at Marion Co. hospitals lifted

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Temporary visitor restrictions at Marion County hospitals will be removed Wednesday.

The restrictions were put in place March 11, to curb the spread of the flu in hospitals.

According to the release, the number of patients coming into the emergency rooms with the symptoms dropped steadily since March.

“While flu activity is going down in Marion County, we must continue to protect ourselves and each other by doing simple things such as washing hands frequently with soap and water, and covering our coughs,” said Dr. Caine. “It is important for anyone with the flu or flu-like symptoms to avoid visiting someone in the hospital and to stay home from work or until symptoms are resolved.”
