Visitation to Princeton Community Hospital restricted due to widespread flu cases

—  Officials with Princeton Community Hospital are asking people to not visit the hospital unless absolutely necessary in the wake of widespread influenza activity.

Hospital spokesperson Richard Hypes released a statement today asking the public to only visit the hospital in case of an emergency due to “the number of adults and children being admitted to Princeton Community Hospital with the flu and other respiratory illnesses.”

The hospital has restricted visitation to those not exhibiting signs or symptoms of respiratory illness. Anyone coming to the hospital exhibiting these signs or symptoms will be asked to wear a mask for health concerns.
