HaysMed limiting visitors during flu season

Hays Medical Center imposed visitor restrictions Friday due to flu season.

Visitors who have influenza symptoms, such as fever, body aches, headache, weakness and cough, will not be allowed on patient floors. Children 12 years of age or younger also will not be admitted.

The number of influenza cases has risen nationally, and HaysMed is taking precautions to help limit the spread of flu, according to a press release.

Signs noting the restrictions are posted near the facility's main entrances.
