Why does CCH implement visiting restrictions because of the flu?

Editor’s note: We’ve had some questions from our community about why, and how, Campbell County Health implements visiting restrictions because of the flu (influenza). Our expert Kate Craig, BSN, RN, CCH's Infection Preventionist, provides the answer.

Flu is a pain. No one wants it, there’s controversy around immunizations and if you have loved ones in the hospital or a nursing home it may mean that you or your children cannot visit them. There’s just nothing fun about it. And, quite frankly, it is frustrating when the powers-that-be seem to keep the season rolling even when the sun is starting to shine, the Easter Bunny arrives with chocolate and the gardening sections at the stores are bustling.

Who decides this stuff, anyway? Read more
