Area hospitals are taking precautions to prevent the spread of the flu. Strong Memorial Hospital is asking people with symptoms not to visit patients. All visitors who haven't been vaccinated are asked to wear masks.

Rochester General Hospital and Newark Wayne Hospital began allowing only two people to visit a patient at a time this week. It is also asking those with flu symptoms not to visit.

At Highland Hospital, similar precautions are in place for those with symptoms. Anyone with symptoms is not permitted to go into the special care nursery or maternity center.
