Don't visit local hospitals if you have symptoms of the flu.
Brady Johnson reports UnityPoint Trinity and Genesis health systems have implemented temporary restrictions on visitors because of an increase in cases of the flu.
Lisa Caffery, R.N. and Infection Prevention Manager at Genesis, says visitors should not come to the hospitals if they're suffering from any these symptoms; breathing problems, sore throat, chills, headache, stuffy or runny nose, cough, fever, or body aches.
Caffery has seen a lot of influenza lately, especially in younger children such as babies and toddlers.
