ARDMORE, Okla. (KXII) - Officials at Mercy Hospital in Ardmore are discouraging visitation.

Officials have asked those not seeking medical treatment, especially children under 12, to not visit the hospital due to the rise in flu cases.

They say this is to protect the patients and staff from the illness.

Friday the Labor and Delivery Center placed a restriction keeping kids under 12 from entering the unit unless they are siblings of the newborn.
