Hospitals Team Up, Tighten Visitor Policies

Most hospitals are limiting the number of visitors to 3 or 4. There are cut backs on visiting hours and new rules for children who visit. "What the public should not take away from this is [that] it's a catastrophe. Things are under control hospitals are busy but it's something we can cope with", said Allina Medical Director Steven Bergson. Read the story at wcco.com or clip the image below to watch the story.
