Minneapolis Star Tribune, October 20, 2009
Like providers across the country, Minnesota-based Allina Hospitals and Clinics announced that it is placing limits on visitors to labor and pediatric units at 10 hospitals in Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Visitors will be screened for flu symptoms and required to have been fever-free for 24 hours. In addition, visitors must be over age 5 if they are siblings and over age 16 if they are not. Parents of patients may be asked to wear masks if they have flu symptoms.
