UK HealthCare Amends Visitation Policy

The statement says the measures are temporary and exceptions could be made on a case-by-case basis.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - UK HealthCare says it has amended its visitation policy for patients due to concerns about the growing number of flu cases reported in the state.

A statement says the new restrictions include no visitors under the age of 18, no visitors with any flu-type illnesses and only two visitors per patient at one time. Officials say visitors who are allowed in also might be required to wear protective clothing or masks.

The statement says the measures are temporary and exceptions could be made on a case-by-case basis.
