(AP) -- Hospitals in Akron and the rest of Summit County have issued a temporary ban on children 15 and younger from visiting parents. They say the measure is a way to combat the spread of influenza.
Flu cases are on the rise in the county.
Adults with flu symptoms, including fever, chills and muscle aches, also are being asked to avoid visiting hospitalized patients.
