Hospital braced for cold and flu season


Cold and flu season is upon us, leaving health facilities in the county stressing guidelines for those who visit the facilities.

According to Angie Phillips, infection prevention and health nurse for the Manor and Weston County Health Services, the goal of these guidelines is to protect not only the residents and patients, but also those visiting the facility.

“As of right now, as far as visitors go, we are asking that no children under 12 visit the facility,” Phillips said. She explained that children, along with residents and patients, tend to be “amino compromised,” or more apt to get illness.
