Memorial Health System says at Marietta Memorial and Selby General hospitals, they're allowing only 2 visitors per-patient.

Additionally, no visitors under age 18, or anyone with flu-like symptoms, are allowed in patient rooms.

Camden Clark Medical Center in Parkersburg says it's also allowing only two visitors per-patient, and the hospital is not allowing anyone with flu-like symptoms to visit patients.

Visitors at CCMC are also being asked to check in at the main desk, and no one younger than 12 is allowed to visit maternity patients.

The hospitals did not say how long any of these restrictions will remain in place at their facilities.
