Sickness prompts visitor restrictions at MGH

Jan 10, 2014

MARQUETTE, MI--   Marquette General Hospital is restricting visitors in an effort to stop the flu from spreading to patients and staff.  

Officials say only essential family will be allowed in patient rooms; children under the age of 14 are not permitted in the hospital, unless for an appointment or emergency room visit; and only parents will be allowed in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

Anyone who has symptoms of the flu is asked to stay away from the hospital altogether.
