DANVILLE -- A hospital is putting restrictions on its visitors. No one under 18 is allowed inside the Danville V.A. hospital.

Officials say they've seen a small flu outbreak over the last few days. Six patients have gotten sick.

People with flu-like symptoms are also asked to stay out of the hospital. Visitors are also asked to wear a mask.

The hospital says the goal is to keep veterans, both patients and visitors, safe. It hopes to remove the restrictions in the next few days.
