Published:

As a result of the rising number of influenza cases, as of Thursday Robinson Memorial Hospital in Ravenna has restricted visitation to people 14 years and older during flu season.

"Children are more susceptible to the flu," and could be exposed if they visited the hospital, said RMH spokeswoman Andrea Pettit.

The hospital has admitted 30 cases since Oct. 5, Pettit said. RMH saw the first out-patient case on Sept. 20 and has seen 77 out-patient cases up to Thursday, she said.
