DOVER, Del.- As the number of flu cases in Delaware continue to rise, Bayhealth is enacting a temporary flu visitation policy.

Starting Jan. 10, people under the age of 16 are discouraged from visiting anyone at the Bayhealth hospitals in Dover and Milford. Visitation to the Neonatal Intensive Care United at the Kent Campus is currently restricted to parents, guardians and grandparents. Exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis, Bayhealth said.

Additionally, Bayhealth is asking that anyone experiencing flu-like symptoms, like a sore throat or body aches, not to visit hospital patients at this time.

"We appreciate everyone's patient and understanding," Infection Prevention Manager Kelly Gardner said. "Our main goal is to keep our patients and our visitors safe."

Any updates to the temporary flu visitation policy will be posted on Bayhealth's website.
