Health department lifts visiting restrictions

April 9, 2019

The number of flu cases has dropped in Allen County, which has prompted the Allen County Health Department to lift visiting restrictions at area healthcare facilities. 

The restriction was put in place last month limiting the number of visitors to two per patient at one time and only visitors who were 18-years-old or older to visit. 

While the number of cases has dropped, seasonal flu activity is expected to continue for the next couple of weeks and residents should still take precautions, the Allen County Health Department said.
