Mat-Su hospital bans children visitors

Posted: Monday, November 16, 2009

ANCHORAGE - To help prevent the spread of swine flu, the Mat-Su Regional Medical Center said no one under age 12 may visit patients this flu season.

The virus is most prevalent among children, and hospital officials say keeping them away will protect the health of patients, workers and visitors.

The policy remains in effect until the hospital decides the high risk of exposure has passed.
