      Hospitals impose visitor restrictions to fight flu spread

      The Dickinson County Healthcare System in Iron Mountain has put some restrictions on visitors to their facility to help control the spread of the flu.

      The OB unit-family birth place now has restrictions to only include spouses or significant others and parents and grandparents of the newborn only. Any individuals under 18, including siblings, are restricted from the OB department.

      Also, anyone experiencing upper respiratory symptoms should not visit patients in the hospital. These restrictions are in effect until further notice.
