Hospital lifts visitor restrictions

Sunday, April 19, 2015 — As the flu and cold season winds down, Banner Health, one of the nation's largest health care providers, has lifted visitor restrictions at all of its facilities. Restrictions for the 2014-2015 cold and flu season were implemented last Oct. 1; a little earlier than expected because of the outbreak of Enterovirus D68 across the nation.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than half a million people nationwide have been tested for flu viruses since Sept. 28, 2014, with 112,246 positive cases.
