Baptist Health issues policy dealing with H1N1 virus

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Baptist Health is the third hospital in our area to ask that sick people or children under the age of 12 not come to its three hospitals to visit other patients.

The hospital hopes the policy will help stop the spread of the H1N1 virus.

Southeast Alabama Medical Center in Dothan, and East Alabama Medical Center in Opelika also have new virus prevention policies that keep children and teens out of their hospitals.
