The University of Kentucky Medical Center and Cardinal Hill Hospital are taking extra precautions to prevent the spread of the flu in their facilities.

Both hospitals say they're not allowing visitors to patients under the age of 18 and anyone who's not a patient but displaying the symptoms of the flu.

They also are limiting the number of visitors for each patient to two at a time.

Both hospitals will also offer masks and protective clothing to visitors.

Doctors at UK say they're seeing five to seven cases of the flu every day.

They say we've yet to hit the peak of the flu season, which will go into the Spring.
