The restrictions include no visitors with symptoms of influenza, no visitors under the age of 18, and visitors limited to immediate family as identified by the patient.
Individuals who are at the highest risk for experiencing complications of influenza include children under 2 and adults over 65.
The affected hospitals include the Richard Roudebush V.A. Medical Center.
Hospitals in Anderson and Elwood imposed similar restrictions on Wednesday.
