UK HealthCare has lifted inpatient visitation restrictions that were in effect because of flu cases.
For the past three weeks, there has been a steady decline in the number of flu cases, said Kim Blanton, enterprise director for infection prevention and control at UK HealthCare.
UK HealthCare had banned visitors younger than 18 and anyone with flu-like symptoms, and limited the number of visitors in a room.
However, visitation restrictions will remain in effect in the bone marrow transplant center and the neonatal intensive care unit for a few more weeks.
Never miss a local story.
Those areas generally limit visitation during the entire flu season, Blanton said.
Overall, during this flu season, UK HealthCare has had 194 inpatient flu cases.
