As flu season reaches its peak, some hospitals are restricting visitor access, in order to prevent the virus from spreading.
WSJM reports that Lakeland Hospital in St. Joseph, Michigan will only allow visitors who are over the age of 18, and who are immediate family members of someone in the hospital. They also ask you not to visit if you are sick.
Meanwhile the St. Joseph Regional Medical Center limits visitors to two per patient, and they will not take visitors under the age of 18.
This is all meant to protect patients during the peak of the flu season.
In addition, SJRMC is hosting a free flu shot clinic Thursday, January 16. They are giving out 200 free shots, from 2-7p.m. at the Mishawaka campus.
