Health Warning

Today's Sunday edition of The Grand Rapids Press had an article by Bryce Airgood on a flu outbreak at nearby Davenport University. I just emailed him with this message:

Hello Bryce,

You say in your article on the flu that "hospitals . . . ask visitors who are sick . . . to stay home [that visitors, among other things, should not have] . . . draining sores, vomiting or diarrhea . . . [and that such people should not visit] until further notice."

Will you please let the public know when these West Michigan hospitals give "further notice" that visitors with "draining sores, vomiting and diarrhea" are welcome back? Word on the street is that hospital stays make a person sicker. No wonder.
