Flu numbers are on the rise and that is starting to cause for concern in nursing homes.

To make sure nursing home residents avoid the traveling sickness some places are implementing flu-related restrictions.

Trinity homes announced that all visits to the long term care facility are suspended unless necessary.

Along with that, children are not permitted to visit and group activities run by groups coming in from outside have been restricted until further notice.

KX reached out to nursing homes across western North Dakota and found out that many require masks to be worn around residents and require you to sanitize when you enter the building.

Memorial hospital nursing home in Garrison also restricts children under 18 from visiting.
