Dickinson hospital lifts visitor restrictions


CHI St. Alexius hospital in Dickinson has lifted visitor restrictions, the hospital said in a press release.

The visitor restrictions were originally announced in January due to the severity of this year's influenza strain. Children were previously prohibited from visiting patient rooms/areas and visitation was restricted to immediate family. Visitors were also asked to wear a mask.

CHI said that in order to protect their patients, if someone is experiencing signs of illness they should still wear a mask or refrain from visiting.
