Wood County Hospital restricts visitors over flu

BOWLING GREEN — Wood County Hospital has followed the lead of some Toledo-area hospitals by restricting visitors to help control the spread of influenza.

Children ages 17 and younger as well as people with respiratory illnesses are asked not to visit the Bowling Green hospital unless they are seeking treatment. Visits are limited to two adults per patient.

Exceptions may be considered on a case-by-case basis, officials said.

On Thursday, ProMedica facilities, Mercy hospitals in the Toledo area, and St. Luke's Hospital were among area hospitals that took similar measures.
